About Always Reading

The Dismantling Racism Committee of Catonsville Presbyterian Church, Grace AME Church and The Christian Temple are hosting a traveling book fair to support Always Reading. Always Reading is a nonprofit organization with a mission to empower children with an abundance of knowledge through books, with their Achieving Through Reading Program. They fulfill their mission by distributing free, new and specially curated books to hundreds of children attending Title I schools in the Baltimore area.  From designated book shelves, children are encouraged to select a book, take it home, and build and expand their home libraries. No other nonprofit does what they do, the way they do it.

Please browse, purchase or donate books for children who might not otherwise have access to books that portray a positive reflection of themselves and expose them to the rich history of their culture. If you have questions or need any assistance please contact Nancy Henderson at henderrath1@verizon.net or via phone at 410-788-5414. Thank you from the Dismantling Racism Committee
