Join The Monarch Society

Bernie’s Book Bank is fortunate to have thousands of incredible volunteers who are the lifeblood of our organization.

There is a growing group of volunteers who commit an extraordinary amount of time to support Bernie’s Book Bank. Officially recognized as the Monarch Society, anyone can join! Membership requires you to commit to volunteering 50 Hours over a 12-month period. The entire Bernie’s Book Bank team is grateful to Monarch Society members and their generous commitment to the children who receive our books

As a member of the Monarch Society, you agree to:

  • Volunteer 50 hours in a 12-month period
  • Provide a birthdate for participating children at sign-in
  • Provide your t-shirt size if you’d like to receive an exclusive Monarch Society tee.
  • Complete the form below for every person participating, even if they are in the same family

As part of the Monarch Society, you will receive ongoing communication via email, enjoy permanent recognition in the Bernie’s Book Bank Processing Center, receive an exclusive t-shirt, and most importantly, support the children we serve in a meaningful way. Once you reach 50 hours of service, you can work toward lifetime achievements (150 hours, 300 hours, 600 hours, and 1,200 hours) and are recognized with a unique pin for each milestone.

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.
