We invite you to “check out” the new website for the Baltimore Library Project!

The Baltimore Elementary and Middle School Library Project (the Library Project, for short) is celebrating its 10th anniversary! So much has happened since this amazing initiative began, and the Weinberg Foundation several months ago undertook a complete redesign of the Library Project website to better capture the exciting growth and accomplishments of this collaborative initiative.

As you may know, the Weinberg Foundation developed and leads the Library Project—a multi-year, collaborative effort to build or transform Baltimore City Public School libraries in neighborhoods where many students face academic and economic challenges. The Foundation has committed $15 million to this initiative, which includes more than 30 community and government partners. By 2024, the Library Project will serve nearly 9,000 students, as well as their families, through 19 new libraries (17 completed to date) and will have leveraged more than $30 million in additional federal, state, and local funds.

We hope you will enjoy the new website. Please click here to explore and see all that has happened in 10 years—a shared vision which aims to provide children with strong literacy skills, and a love of reading and writing, that will help to equip them for future success.
