My daughters are growing up in a pretty lucky environment and they need to know from a young age that not everyone is as lucky as they are. Being young children, you have to show them and take them to Bernie’s Book Bank…giving them an actual experience is so much better than just telling them about it.

You don't have to work in education to know that there are many factors in learning to be a successful reader, but none is as important as having actual access to personal books. Bernie's Book Bank comes walking right into the classrooms on a regular basis and makes the impossible possible for these children.
