General FAQ

When are you open for browsing?

Due to the recent spike in Covid 19 cases and to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers, and visitors, we will be suspending in-person distribution at our warehouse for two weeks.  We will reevaluate the possibility of allowing visitors into the warehouse after that time.

 

 

Educator Boxes (pre-packed boxes of leveled books) will be available for Members to order and pick up during this time.  Educator boxes can be ordered 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.
