The HPL Family Place Program is made possible in part by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (2016), and by the generous support of PNC Grow Up Great and the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation.
