Joliet, IL – Bernie’s Book Bank has made a monumental impact on Joliet Public Schools District 86 by donating a staggering 59,000 books. Every student in PreK through 6th grade will soon have 8 new books to enjoy at home, thanks to this benevolent gesture.

Located in Lake Bluff, Bernie’s Book Bank is a nonprofit organization with a powerful mission. Since its inception in 2009, the organization has distributed over 19 million quality books to under-served children. In a society where 2 out of 3 children lack access to books, Bernie’s Book Bank is a beacon of hope for nearly 300,000 children in the Chicagoland area. Their focus on book ownership aims to empower children with improved literacy and a love for reading.

Founder Brian Floriani established Bernie’s Book Bank to bridge the literacy gap. The organization is committed to delivering culturally relevant, high-interest books to children. Their impact goes beyond Chicago, making them a pivotal force in reshaping education and literacy nationwide.

Supporting Bernie’s Book Bank is crucial to their mission. By donating books, time, or resources, individuals contribute to empowering children to explore new ideas and develop strong reading skills. Bernie’s Book Bank is more than a distributor of books; it’s a catalyst for change in communities.
