Our collection is 100% sorted, stocked, and shelved by volunteers. Without the support of our community, we could not exist. People like you help us distribute thousands of books every week to children, teachers, librarians, and caregivers across the state. By sorting donations, stocking the Bookmobile, and shelving the Book Bank, you give under-resourced children the tools they need to thrive.


Anyone can volunteer!  All we need is some of your time and your enthusiasm!  We welcome:  


  • Individuals (teens and adults)

  • Groups  (clubs, teams, scout troops, or just bring some friends together for a day)

  • Students needing to satisfy a community service hours requirement

  • Corporate groups looking for community outreach opportunities

When can I volunteer?


  • Pop in to volunteer during the Book Bank's business hours on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

  • Set up a regular schedule to come in and help. 

  • For groups, we do ask that you notify us in advance so that we can prepare for your arrival. 

To ensure a simpler way to sign up for opportunities and track your volunteer hours, the Maryland Book Bank is now using Better Impact! To sign-up as an individual volunteer please click here.
