    Service Event: Bernie's Book Bank

    Calling all book-loving nonprofit professionals! Join YNPN Chicago for a Saturday afternoon service event at Bernie's Book Bank in Lake Bluff, IL. At this no-cost event, we'll be sorting, labeling, and packaging children's books from 12:30 - 2PM. Come meet other young nonprofit professionals while getting an inside look at a local organization and giving back to the Chicagoland community. Please contact if you are in need of transportation to this event.

    Bernie’s Book Bank sources, processes and distributes quality new and gently used children’s books to significantly increase book ownership among at-risk infants, toddlers and school-age children throughout Chicagoland. This is a no-cost service event open to all, including families and children.
