The Maryland Book Bank is powered by volunteers who help us sort incoming book donations so that we can distribute them to children and educators across Maryland.  

We are happy to welcome group and individual volunteers to the warehouse to help us sort and organize book donations for the Book Bank and Bookmobile.  


Volunteering at the Book Bank is a great opportunity to have a positive impact on your community and we appreciate your enthusiasm!
