At Charm City Books, we are dedicated to making reading an essential part of everyone’s life. 

School supplies can be costly, especially for teachers. For this reason, we have partnered with George Washington Elementary School to get more books into teacher's classrooms as a way of allievating some of the high cost of classroom supplies and as a way of saying thank you to our local teachers for their invaluable work they do.

  • With Pay-it-Forward, you are able to purchase books from a teacher's classroom wishlist and we, working in partnership with local schools, deliver those book directly into the hands of the teacher for his/her classroom at the end of the month. We will feature a new teacher each month!
  • To participate in the Pay-it-Forward program, choose a title from the listed books below, place the book(s) in your cart and write “pay it forward” in the notes during checkout so we know this book goes to the wishlist of a local teacher. You can also always Pay it Forward directly in the shop by coming in and buying the book! We will collect all of the purchased books at the end of the month and along with a donation of our own, deliver the books all together.

*If purchasing online, make sure to put "Pay-it-Forward" in the notes upon checkout!*

Our goal for March and April is to collect 100 copies of

Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You 
by Jason Reynolds & Ibram X Kendi

so that every 7th and 8th grade student and their teachers at Southwest Baltimore Charter School will have a copy.
