    [photo, Annapolis Book Festival, Election 2012 Panel, Annapolis, Maryland] In Maryland, education encompasses more than formal instruction in the classroom. Archives, libraries, museums, research centers, and institutes provide further sources of learning. Institutions, such as the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, offer work programs for college students, and educational lectures and workshops, open to the public.

Commonly sponsored by local associations and corporations, these festivals benefit educational institutions, and the community. One of the most notable is the Baltimore Book Festival, held each September at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore.
