Baltimore Reads Book Bank

The Baltimore Reads Book Bank has provided more than 1,000,000 new and gently used children's books to disadvantaged families in Baltimore since 1992. Their goal is to spark family reading at home by making sure there are plenty of books available.

Volunteers are needed to help organize books at the Book Bank. On days when the weather is favorable, volunteer organizers at the Book Bank often arrange for volunteers to work outdoors!

The Book Bank is located at the back of The Baltimore Sun warehouse complex, where parking is available for all volunteers. The Book Bank can be difficult to find, so be sure to follow the directions at www.baltimorereads.org/directions-and-hours.html.

This event has been very popular with volunteers who work with children. An extra benefit of sorting books for the Baltimore Reads Book Bank is the nostalgia trip you'll experience when you see books that you just might remember from your childhood...!

 

For those who are interested, we may go to lunch at a nearby restaurant after this event.

    We currently have 4 volunteer slots left, so it might be a good idea to update your RSVP if you can't make it. (I'd also like to provide an accurate count to the Book Bank on how many volunteers to expect.)

    If you've never been to the Book Bank before, DON'T FORGET to check out the driving directions link in the event info. The entrance is a bit hard to find.

    Thanks to everyone for signing up for this event!
