​​​​​​​Books for Kids Day  is a day when we collect a massive assortment of new and gently-used books from individuals and groups in our community.  The Maryland Book Bank and its volunteers continue the tradition of this highly anticipated day.  We hope you will join us

Our goal is to collect 30,000 new and gently used books of all kinds to benefit children in need, and we can't reach that goal without you! 

Ways you can help:

  • It's a great time to do some spring cleaning! Clean off your shelves and donate your unwanted books.  Pack them up and drop them off at BFKD on May 6th.
  • Host a Book Drive!  Organize your school, workplace, church, community center, neighborhood, or other group.


  • Volunteer your time to help sort and organize the books we collect.  Click HEREto sign up as a volunteer.

  • Event Sponsorship is a way you or your company can provide financial support.​  Please contact Mark Feiring at (410) 598-1771 to discuss sponsorship opportunities.
