Bernie’s Book Bank is honored to be the featured nonprofit organization on the Ruth Fell Wander Community Art Wall at First Bank of Highland Park throughout the month of October.

The community art wall was created in 2002 in memory of First Bank of Highland Park Director, Ruth Fell Wander. The art wall showcases artwork from local nonprofit organizations and provides visibility to the various resources and services offered throughout the community.

“It is an honor for Bernie’s Book Bank to be featured on the Ruth Fell Wander Community Art Wall,” says Brian Floriani, Founder and Chief Advancement Officer. “First Bank of Highland Park has been huge supporter of our mission since the very beginning. We’re grateful for their ongoing generosity in the form of volunteer hours, donated children’s books, monetary investment and much more.”

Throughout the month of October, First Bank of Highland Park will be collecting gently used children’s books to support Bernie’s Book Bank. The exhibit is located in the bank lobby and will be open to the public during regular bank hours.
