On September 8, 2021, City of Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, and the Bush Family along with special guests, celebrated the highly anticipated Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting of the Barbara Bush Literacy Plaza (BBLP) at the Houston Public Library Downtown. Renamed for Mrs. Barbara Bush in 2016, the beautifully transformed, versatile plaza fulfills the promise the City of Houston made to the First Lady of Literacy, Mrs. Barbara Bush. A promise, a plan, and now a reality that celebrates the life and legacy of Mrs. Bush.
Now you too can leave your very own legacy during the “Be a Part of the Plaza” campaign. Kicking-off in March 2022 and concluding in October 2022, supporters of this effort will choose from an array of naming opportunities – pavers, planters, benches and more – all strategically placed in prominent areas on the Plaza including the Children’s and Adult’s reading areas. Perhaps you and/or your organization would prefer to signify your love for literacy and Mrs. Bush by placing your name on the magnificent Tribute Water Wall Terrace. There are so many ways that you too can “Be a Part of the Plaza”!
WITH GREAT APPRECIATION AND GRATITUDE TO OUR
