"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."

- Dr. Seuss

Mission:

Bernie's Book Bank facilitates the collection, processing and redistribution of new and gently used children's books to significantly increase BOOK OWNERSHIP among at-risk infants, toddlers and school-age children throughout Chicagoland.

About:

Bernie’s Book Bank is the logistical bridge between where currently unused books are today, to where they are desperately needed. We do three things exceptionally well:  we collect hundreds of thousands of new and gently used books; we process them into collections of six age-appropriate and leveled books; and we deliver them directly into the hands of low-income children who have none of their own. Please visit our website, www.berniesbookbank.org, for more information.
