At The Maryland Book Bank, we are united in our belief that all children deserve the resources needed to enrich the mind, encourage success, and instill a lifetime love of reading.
For more than 20 years the Book Bank was part of the nonprofit organization, Baltimore Reads Inc. In that time, the Book Bank provided over 1.8 million books to children, teachers, schools and other organizations saving those who received the books over 14 million dollars and providing vital educational resources to those in need.
Over time the Book Bank grew in scope to include the Home Library Program for second grade students in participating schools as well as our social enterprise book selling operation which helped fund the organization's programs.
WHO WE ARE TODAY
On March 1, 2014, the Book Bank and its programs were acquired by The Maryland Book Bank, a separate and independent nonprofit organization. We are energetically and passionately continuing the work of getting free books into the hands of children.
