Books for Maryland Kids

     If you belong to an organization that is looking for a project that will help Maryland children consider doing what is mentioned in the information I received from the Maryland Book Bank:

"Books For Kids Day will be on Saturday , May 2nd from 9-2, rain or shine! That means that it is time to start your book drives and help children all over Maryland get the books they need to be successful in life and school.

Visit our web site at www.Marylandbookbank.org where you will find information about the event, directions on how to do a book drive and to download the new event flyer to use for your drive.

 If you or your organization are interested in volunteering for Books For Kids Day you will find a link to our Sign Up Genius page on the site  as well.

Please help us collect 25,000 books to help thousands of children become the best readers they can be. The sad fact is the number of age appropriate  children's books in a low income home is between 0 and 2. We need your help to change that here in Maryland."

P.S.
    Congratulations to Carol Beatty the long time Executive Director of the ARC of Howard County with her appointment to be the new Maryland Secretary of the Department of Disabilities
