General FAQ

When are you open?

We are currently offering timed distribution slots for the safety of our visitors.  You may sign up for a slot by clicking here.

Do you only accept children's books?

We accept books of all reading levels and genres in good condition. Children's books through YA are distributed through our Book Bank and Bookmobile programs, and adult books are sold with proceeds benefitting those programs.

How can I buy from your adult collection?

We do not sell adult books on site,  but you can search for us (The Maryland Book Bank) on online book retailers like Amazon to shop our adult books and support our non-profit work. 

I want to donate books/host a book drive.

Can I donate outside of your open hours?

Yes! Our South loading dock is open 24/7 and contains donation receipts. Simply leave your boxes on the dock and fill out the receipt, taking the white copy and leaving us the yellow carbon copy for our records.
