On October 13th Bernie’s Book Bank reached a major milestone, the distribution of our 20 MILLIONTH free book since 2009!
To celebrate this achievement Darrin Utynek, CEO of Bernie’s Book Bank, led an assembly-style book delivery event at St. Ann School in partnership with Big Shoulder Fund. The 20 millionth book was wrapped in green paper and students excitedly searched their book bags to find this special book. Mia received the 20 millionth book.
Our 20 millionth books distribution was made possible thanks to our generous supporters. If you’ve volunteered, given gently used children’s books, donated money, attended a fundraising event or served on a board/committee, you helped make 20 million books possible. Thank you!
