This past week marks the 6th month that the Network has received 1,000 books a month from the The Maryland Book Bank!
These 6,000 books for children have been distributed by volunteers happy to give them out, and received by delighted children and their families. Some of the books have already found their way into the libraries of Network schools.
A huge thank-you to Joanne for making this partnership possible. She has spent countless hours sorting through donated books and also given of her time through many trips to the Book Bank and to our storage space at Goucher.
These photos don’t begin to tell the story – we respect the privacy of recipients. But we can all imagine the thousands of smiles and the pleasure and learning these books have and will generate.
Thank you Maryland Book Bank, and thank you, Joanne!
The last two photos show Linnea, “ resident librarian“ for Network Essentials Delivery(NED), carefully selecting books for our families in need receiving delivery. What a joy!
