The Baltimore Elementary and Middle School Library Project has moved into its second year, and what a fantastic way to start! Maryland’s U.S. Senator Ben Cardin, a strong supporter of the Library Project, spoke about the initiative from the floor of the U.S. Senate. You can watch Senator Cardin’s address by clicking here.

Senator Cardin invited members of the Library Project team and Weinberg Foundation staff to witness this exciting moment from the Senate gallery. The remarks were followed by a photo with the Senator on the steps of the U.S. Capitol and a private tour of the recently renovated Library of Congress.

A special thanks goes out to all who joined us on the field trip. It was an early morning, but well worth the drive to be part of something so memorable. A list of project partners and the Senator’s remarks will be included in the official congressional remarks for the day.
