Teachers of BookSmiles
More than 100 teachers visit the book bank each month, collectively taking thousands of books for their classroom libraries and to give to their students to take home.
"I'm Anna Marie and this is my daughter Kaylah. She's a rising first year teacher in the Philadelphia Catholic school system, which is where I have taught for my entire career - a second generation! Kaylah just graduated from Arcadia University, and I am so proud of her. This is our first time at BookSmiles, and we came over the Tac Pal Bridge to get here. It is worth it!
We are blown away by the quality, and we hand-picked several dozen books. Kaylah even took baby board books that you see here for her first grade students' baby siblings."
