SAIL: Students Achieve in Libraries!

SAIL is part of an expanded partnership between Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) and Baltimore County Public Libraries (BCPL). Studies show that students who use their public libraries achieve greater success in school. Here’s the first step towards greater success for Baltimore County’s students. Please complete this library registration form on behalf of your child. (Don’t forget to sign it!) Library representatives will collect the forms from your child’s school, create the library cards and deliver them back to the school for distribution in your child’s homeroom. If your child already has a Baltimore County Public Library card, he/she will be issued a new card as part of this program.


We hope to see you and your child in one our branches soon!

Earth Day Resources for April

Ocean Conservation

Sylvia Earle: How to protect the oceans (TED Prize winner!)
Mission Blue - Official Trailer - Netflix [HD]

Mission Blue is an awesome documentary!

“It’s her natural charisma and infectious enthusiasm that are most compelling onscreen. As one of the first and foremost American women oceanographers, she became a standard-bearer among female field-research scientists, while also marrying and raising a family, long before the term “supermom” ever entered the lexicon.”

~ The Hollywood Reporter
