Battle of the Books

Foundation for Baltimore County Public Library is proud to sponsor Battle of the Books competitions, hosted by various branches throughout the library 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 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.
