Join us for 12 hours of volunteering

Volunteer-A-Thon is a high energy event focused on processing books for at-risk Chicagoland children, learning more about Bernie’s Book Bank and enjoying a few hours with like-minded book lovers. This is a great opportunity to give back, meet new people and provide an opportunity for your children, friends and co-workers to share the volunteer experience with you!

We need YOU! Join us for 12 hours of volunteering, food and fun on February 1st and 2nd. We welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities. However, we are especially in need of experienced levelers or adult volunteers willing to learn.

Online registration for the Volunteer-A-Thon will be available in January.

The next Volunteer-A-Thon is February 1st & 2nd.
