Battle of the Books

The Foundation for BCPL is proud to sponsor Battle of the Books competitions, hosted by various branches throughout the BCPL system. “Battle of the Books” is a program in which students in grades 4 to 6 from participating local elementary schools read Black-Eyed Susan-nominated books and come together in teams chosen by the schools to demonstrate their abilities and to test their reading comprehension. The Black-Eyed Susan Book Award is a children’s choice award given to authors and/or illustrators of outstanding books. The award has been given by Maryland students every year since 1992.

Hereford Branch FutureMakers Program

The Foundation for BCPL awarded a grant to the Hereford Branch to offer a series of FutureMakers Digital Fabrication Workshops for children ages 8 to 16. The workshops offered STEM-related learning through fun, accessible programs such as 3D Printing and Sticker Labs, where children used software like TinkerCAD, SketchUp and Inkscape to create 3D models and graphic designs.
