A family-friendly event benefiting Bernie’s Book Bank.
Storybook Festival is a new family-friendly event embracing the fun and magic of children’s storybooks. Children enjoy a performance by a story-performer, a costume parade, greetings with book characters, distanced activity areas and more. All proceeds from the event benefit our mission to increase book ownership among under-served children throughout Chicagoland.
The inaugural event was Saturday, May 22nd at Bernie’s Book Bank in Lake Bluff. Thank you to everyone who attended! For a recap of the event and a fully gallery of photos, visit our blog.
