The Mobile Library Law Center is a retrofitted van with two private meeting spaces plus all the necessary electronic equipment and internet access, the vehicle has a librarian available to work one-on-one with customers to provide general legal resources with a focus on immigration, education, social welfare and health care. We also partnered with Maryland Legal Aid, to provide free legal services directly in the community to targeted groups, such as individuals with disabilities, seniors, veterans, those with low income and the justice-involved. The vehicle is currently on the road focused in underserved areas. A full schedule is available on the library website (bcpl.info).

Storyville is an award-winning, interactive early literacy and learning center for children ages birth to 5 and their caregivers. Storyville is a child-sized village that includes developmentally appropriate books and activities.

Baltimore County Public Library has two Storyville locations including Storyville@Rosedale and Storyville@Woodlawn. The two projects were funded by Foundation for Baltimore County Public Library to support the library's mission to "mobilize resources that support the library's commitment to a superior public library system where opportunities for literacy, reading enrichment and lifelong learning are available to all."

Both early literacy learning centers host seven interactive play stations where infants and preschoolers can explore and grow while engaging in developmentally appropriate activities. Books and activities at each site promote cognitive, motor, language and social skills, depending on the age group.

Data
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
