The Home Library Program
The Home Library Program is The Maryland Book Bank's Kindergarten-2nd grade reading initiative, designed to help build home libraries during the critical years of early literacy.
The Important Details
*Participation in the Maryland Book Bank Home Library Program consists of 2 visits from our Baltimore Ravens Maryland Book Bank Bookmobile. One visit will take place in the Fall of 2022 with a follow-up visit in the Spring of 2023. We will work with each school to select a date and time.
*Children in Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd Grade will be able to board the Bookmobile and select 10 books of their choice at each visit. These books will be theirs to take home and keep, building their home library.
*Title One Schools and Title One Targeted schools that serve at-risk populations will be given priority for Bookmobile visits.
*Educators will have the opportunity to select books from the Bookmobile during the visit to add to their classroom library.
