Help sort, sticker, and/or package children's books with Bernie's Book Bank. Volunteers of all ages over 5 years are welcome. We hope you can join us!

Super family-friendly event! What better way for families to help other families?

Following the event, we will gather at the family-friendly Silo Restaurant (625 Rockland Rd., Lake Bluff, IL 60044) for a Wharton cash mixer for food and drinks. 

When 2 out of 3 under-served children lack books, something needs to change. That’s why Bernie’s Book Bank empowers nearly 300,000 Chicagoland children to read their way to a better life through book ownership.

Create Opportunities for Under-Served Children Through Literacy
Reading is the single most important skill a child needs — yet many lack access to books. Bernie’s Book Bank strives to make books accessible to all children. We need your help to continue increasing book ownership in under-served communities. By donating books, time, and resources, you’re helping children reimagine the world and envision a better future.

*** Carpool rides will be organized for those in the city to the event or be picked up at the Lake Bluff train station (via Metra from Ogilvie) ***
