Lawyers for Literacy
This committee coordinates the annual HBA book drive among law firms, corporations and individuals and conducts readings to Harris County elementary schools for Constitution Day and Law Day.
The annual book drive has been moved to spring of 2021.
Click here to sign up as a volunteer to read virtually for Constitution Day. This year, we are reading The Next President: The Unexpected Beginnings and Unwritten Future of America’s Presidents by Kate Messner and Adam Rex.
If you would like to sign up your elementary school for a Constitution Day reading, submit the electronic form at hba.org/reading.

“On behalf of the more than 42,000 students we serve, we would like to thank you and the Houston Bar Association community for hosting a book drive to benefit our program. The 337 books you collected will ensure that even more at-risk students in Houston have access to age-appropriate books within their homes. We are so very grateful for your meaningful support!”

“Thank you guys again so much, for thinking about the patients and families at Texas children’s for your book drive. I look forward to it every year and I know our families do too.” – Texas Children’s Hospital
