We are proud to support Bernie's Book Bank in their focus to
increase book ownership among infants, toddlers and
school-age children in need throughout Chicagoland.

…You couldn't make believe
that you were casting spells like Harry,
or dive into a tale
that gave you goosebumps it was so scary.
Green eggs and ham, for all you know,
it really did taste yucky.
Why was George so curious?
You wouldn't know, you're not that lucky.
All your favorite stories,
to you, they would not exist,
if you never had all those books
you simply can't resist.
So now's your chance
to help some kids less fortunate than you.
Stop by your community bank
and donate a bag of books or two!

Since 2009, Bernie's Book Bank has collected, processed
and redistributed more than 1.5 MILLION books to children in
need in and around Chicago. With the help of local
organizations, including Wintrust, Bernie's Book Bank will collect,
process and redistribute 1 MILLION books per year in 2013.
Let's work together to help them reach and even exceed that goal
and put books in the hands of more children.
