Our 2009 fiscal year was
one of the busiest Baltimore
County Public Library has ever
experienced ...
          as a shaky economy drew people into our branches in record numbers. With a nearly 10% increase in visits
          to the library in the first month of the fiscal year, it quickly became apparent that the public library was a
          refuge for people looking for inexpensive entertainment and reliable sources of information.

          Seeing the public turn to the library, we developed 16 “BCPL Can Help” podcasts on a variety of consumer
          subjects, including food budgets, foreclosure and home repair. With just a quick visit to our Web site,
          someone could learn about all of the resources the library had to offer on these newly spotlighted and
          in-demand subjects.

          To keep up with increased demand for our services, Baltimore County Public Library continued to be open
          a collective 1,126 hours per week, resulting in nearly 6 million visits to BCPL branches and over 10 million
          items loaned. We also added 512,000 items to the collections last fiscal year. We expanded our after-school
          programs for teens assisted by a grant from the Local Management Board.

          As Internet access continued to surge in demand, we upgraded our bandwidth to expand electronic capacity
          almost eight fold and replaced 844 computers and related equipment used by the public.

          Though the 2009 fiscal year was certainly challenging, it was not without celebrations. We enjoyed the
          20th anniversary of the Hereford branch, the 40th anniversary of the Essex branch and the 70th anniversary
          of the Towson Friends group. We opened a new, state-of-the-art Perry Hall branch. Storyville recorded over
          130,000 total visits since opening in 2008. In addition, we finalized plans for a new Storyville in Woodlawn,
          a brand new Arbutus branch and an addition to the Cockeysville branch, all of which will break ground in
          fiscal year 2010.

          We enter the 2010 fiscal year with uncertainty as to where the economy may go, but with confidence that
          Baltimore County Public Library will continue to heed the call as a needed and valued community resource.
          We look forward to serving you.

and entertainment purposes.
With an emphasis on programs that promote early literacy, summer reading, library use by K-12 students and information

our story time volunteers delivered 493 programs to a total audience of 15,800.

    In addition to regular programming such as story times, Summer Reading Club, and book clubs/discussions for adults, other
    key programs during 2008-09 included:

            Holecheck, Wayne C. McGinnis, Mark Millikin, Suzanne Supplee, Michael C. Riisager and Jacqueline Woodson.
         • Demonstrations of the process in creating picture books by childen’s author/illustrator Jennifer O’Connor.
         • Photographing Baltimore with Denny Lynch, who conducted a fascinating photographic tour of Baltimore
         • Numerous educational opportunities for teens including chess lessons, magic lessons, after-school tutoring
            sessions and babysitting training.

    BCPL also works to present partnership opportunities with other institutions and individuals, such as County agencies or
    volunteers with expertise in areas of interest to local communities.

    During 2008-09, BCPL presented several partnership programs including:

         • “One Maryland One Book” (a program of the Maryland Humanities Council coordinated by the Maryland
             Center for the Book).
         • “Your Vote, Your Future” (an election 2008 speaker series in partnership with the Baltimore County League
             of Women Voters).
         • Exciting, active programs for children including “The Chef Shapes Up” and “Let’s Get Physical” (in

         The Foundation for
  Baltimore County Public Library
             Annual Report
     July 1, 2008-June 30, 2009

                           Our Mission
The Foundation for Baltimore County Public Library mobilizes resources
to support the Library’s commitment to a superior public library system
   where opportunities for literacy, reading enrichment and lifelong
                      learning are available to all.

     A Message from the Foundation President
      After opening Storyville in 2008, we thought the 2009 fiscal year might be anticlimactic.
      We were certainly proved to be wrong!

      Storyville has seen over 130,000 visitors since it opened. Based on the success of
      Storyville, Baltimore County agreed to fund the construction of a second Storyville on
      the west side of the county. We spent time in 2009 advising on plans for the new
      Storyville as the county recognized the accomplishments of the first Storyville, which
      was fully funded by the Foundation for BCPL. Certainly, Storyville has far surpassed the
      Foundation’s expectations, and we are proud of the venue’s success.

      In addition to providing funds to BCPL for Storyville, the Foundation for BCPL also
      provided support in 2009 for the My First Library Card campaign by funding the
      purchase of backpacks that are given to children the first time they use their card. In
      fiscal year 2008, the My First Library Card program recorded 21,901 registrations and
      over 260,000 items were circulated on My First Library Cards, an increase of more than
      20,000 items from the previous fiscal year.

      We could not effectively support the efforts of the Baltimore County Public Library
      without our generous donors. We are proud of the Foundation’s work over the past
      decade – particularly over the past three years in taking Storyville from a concept to a
      reality – and we are continually looking for ways to make an even greater impact. We
      hope you’ll join us in our efforts.

                                                            Board President

                                                                                                                                   Foundation for BCPL Year in Review
       iscal year 2009 began with an exciting partnership between the Foundation for Baltimore County Public
       Library and the Ravens All Community Team (ACT) Foundation. The ACT awarded the Foundation for BCPL a
       $5,000 grant to purchase activity packs for several fitness and nutrition-oriented children’s programs. The
       activity packs featured a Ravens and BCPL co-branded “Fitness Is Fun” flyer disc and football and other fun
fitness-related items.

On Monday, March 9, a larger and more up-to-date branch opened to serve the Perry Hall community. The spacious
new 25,000-square-foot “green” branch is more than twice the size of the building it replaced. New features
include better handicapped-accessibility, a full-service drive-up window, an adult reading room, two group study
rooms and an area for teens. The new branch also provides a larger meeting room and increased public seating,
a greatly enlarged 3,200-square-foot children’s area, 30 additional personal computers, and a collection that has
more than doubled. The Foundation for BCPL has committed to help fund a reading garden at the new branch; the
garden should be completed in fiscal year 2010.

Storyville, Rosedale’s interactive early literacy center, celebrated its one-year anniversary in February. It is designed
to provide developmentally appropriate play activities, suggestions for adult-child interactions to advance
development and to provide age-appropriate books and materials to promote early literacy skills and reading.
Storyville has welcomed well over 130,000 visitors in the first 16 months. This learning center has become such
a huge success that Baltimore County Public Library and Baltimore County Government have teamed up to design
and implement a second Storyville at the Woodlawn Branch. Construction of Storyville at Woodlawn began in the
fall of 2009, and it is scheduled to open in early 2010.

To further promote early childhood literacy, the Foundation for BCPL supported the purchase of My First Library
Card backpacks that are given to recipients of the My First Library Card, serving as a convenient way to carry the
materials the My First Library Card holder checks out as they begin a lifelong journey of reading.

As we continue to build on our successes, we look forward to continuing to enhance the services of Baltimore
County Public Library.

     Major Initiatives and Programs
     of the Foundation for BCPL
      •   Storyville is an interactive early literacy learning center designed specifically for children ages birth to five and their
          caregivers. Located in the Rosedale branch of the Baltimore County Public Library, Storyville was made possible by
          funds raised by the Foundation for Baltimore County Public Library. The child-sized village includes developmentally
          appropriate books and activities for children ages birth to five. The environments and activities in Storyville are
          specifically designed for caregivers to help their young children enter school ready to learn. Rosedale’s Storyville has
          been extremely successful and popular. Based on this success, a new Storyville is being constructed at the Woodlawn
          branch and will open in the winter of 2010.

      •   Read Rover Plus supports BCPL’s mission to foster a lifelong love of reading in children. This is accomplished through
          monthly visits to licensed day care providers. Each month Read Rover Plus staff perform a story time and help providers
          to check out materials. The story time programs incorporate pre-reading skills which prepare the children for entering
          school. Also, our storytellers model successful techniques during the programs to teach day care providers important
          early literacy skills that they can then share with the children and their parents. Picture books, teacher resources, easy
          nonfiction, concept books, CDs, DVDs and storytelling materials are all available for checkout to further support this

      •   My First Library Card is a program that provides library cards for children ages birth through kindergarten in all
          library branches, and through cooperation with various pre-school programs and Baltimore County Public Schools. The
          Foundation for Baltimore County Public Library purchases backpacks that are given to children the first time they use
          their card.

      •   Teen programs at BCPL are designed to engage teens with their peers and library staff while providing a safe
          environment for learning and socializing. Programs range from educational – including writing workshops and tutoring
          sessions – to entertainment including open mic nights to video game contests. A program to encourage students to
          learn video recording skills was planned in fiscal year 2009 and will launch in fiscal year 2010.

      •   General Library Support allows us to meet the library needs as they arise. These donations give the library the
          flexibility to respond to emerging needs that were not identified prior to the county budget process or to special
          opportunities that arise after the budget year begins.
