We Cancerve Children's Libraries

Library for At-Risk Children

In Spring 2019, We Cancerve opened its first two We Cancerve Children's libraries at the Department of Social Services Visitation Center for foster families in downtown Bel Air, Md., and in the St. Agnes Hospital Pediatric Emergency Room in Baltimore, Md.  In Fall 2019, We Cancerve opened its third children's library at Hall's Cross Roads Elementary School's Family Resource Center. The school, based in Aberdeen, has a Title I designation.


We Cancerve is committed to maintaining these libraries. In coordination with these organizations, our team is committed to sustaining book inventory and tidying each library to ensure young people have an inviting place to explore and enjoy books. 


Due to restrictions of the organizations that we serve, we only accept new and like-new books. Books must not contain any personal markings, rips, tears or stains or pages. Please check our upcoming events page for the next open season for book donations.

"I am proud of the Hall's Cross Roads library because it gives the kids and their families a relaxing space to be together and have adventures through reading." Ashlee Brockwell, sophomore at Patterson Mill High School.

Elizabeth Wesdock, right, led a project to open up the We Cancerve Children's Library at the Harford County Department of Social Services Visitation Center in downtown Bel Air. Here, foster children reuniting with biological parents during a short visitation can bond over a book that the child can choose to keep!
