Book Bank Supports Home Literacy at Wolfe Street Academy

We would like to thank the Baltimore Reads Book Bank for delivering free books to our students at Wolfe Street Academy last week. Second Grade Teacher Melissa Anderson had this to say about the book distribution:

"The kids LOVED the books! The girls were really excited about the Junie B. Jones book and the boys loved Captain Underpants.  Both groups really REALLY liked the Magic Tree House books too!  When I told the kids that they got to keep the books, they acted like it was Christmas!!! I was really sweet."

Over the summer the Book Bank delivered 2,370 books to BCP schools through a program to help prevent summer learning loss.

This is the second school year that BCP schools are participating in a new program that helps build home libraries and encourages reading at home. We would like to thank Director of Book Bank Operations Mark Feiring for supporting our students.
