Baltimore Library Project Book Drive Raises More than $11,000

The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation announced today the final results of the 4th Annual Community Book Drive in support of The Baltimore Elementary and Middle School Library Project (the Library Project).

More than $11,000 was collected through online and cash donations that will purchase more than 1,500 brand new, hardcover children’s books for the Library Project Year 4 (2015) Schools: Westport Academy and the Commodore John Rodgers Elementary Middle School.

In addition, nearly 1,000 books were collected at more than 40 sites throughout the greater Baltimore metropolitan area. New children’s books will be used in this year’s new libraries. Gently used books collected during March and April will benefit the Maryland Book Bank, one of more than 40 supportive Library Project partners.

The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation would like to thank all of the Library Project partners, community members, and organizations that took part in the 2015 Book Drive.
