How It Works

How it works

The Book Bank hosts free programs for children in our spaces, including Storytimes for Students, for children ages 0-12 . Each class has a 45-minute visit where children are read an age-appropriate selection of stories by one of our experienced volunteers and then given time to choose a book to take home to keep. Click on the booking links below to book a trip, or email for more information.
