UN Public Service Day: Since 2003, the UN has recognized June 23 as a day to remember, acknowledge, and support those who participate in public service at all levels. At Bernie’s Book Bank, we appreciate all those who work in the public service sector, especially our city’s wonderful teachers! Our mission at Bernie’s is to expand children’s horizons through the distribution of books. This would not be possible without our partnership to Chicago’s wonderful teachers and schools. Thank you all!
