Bernie’s Book Bank sources, processes and distributes quality new and gently used children’s books for children throughout Chicagoland who may not own any.

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.
