The American Federation of Teachers, in cooperation with the First Book program, announced that it has distributed 1 million books to teachers, low-income students, community and civic groups. Those books included 400,000 books distributed in the Baltimore area.

Christine Curry of the AFT Paraprofessionals and School Related Personnel Department and coordinator of the book distribution effort in Baltimore called the program, “a huge success.”

AFT-Maryland and Baltimore Teachers Union members and staff helped to sort and distribute over 400,000 books in Baltimore earlier this month.
