The Maryland Book Bank, in partnership with the Baltimore Ravens organization, began a mobile library service in September 2016. The bookmobile brings books directly into Baltimore’s "book deserts,” ensuring access to books for children regardless of where they live.
The Bookmobile also provides the important component of choice for children, allowing them to select and keep the books that interest them most.
In 2018, the Bookmobile distributed 146,000 books to more than 29,000 students across Baltimore City.
Over the next two years, our goal is to double the capacity of the bookmobile program to reach 400 young people each week.
Please note: Filling out a Bookmobile visit application does not guarantee a visit. The Bookmobile is extremely popular and our wait list is extensive. We do our very best to accommodate your specific date and time and we appreciate your patience.
At this time the Bookmobile serves Baltimore City schools, programs, and special events. The Bookmobile is only able to accommodate children in grades Prek-3 due to book space restrictions.
Give the gift of a Bookmobile visit to an eligible school of choice for only $500.
