Junior Savers support Bernie’s Book Bank

BARRINGTON – Barrington Bank & Trust and the Junior Savers Club are supporting Bernie’s Book Bank in its mission to increase book ownership among children throughout Chicagoland.

Since 2009, Bernie’s Book Bank has distributed nearly 1.5 million books to children in need in and around Chicago. With the help of local organizations, including Wintrust, Bernie’s Book Bank hopes to collect 100,000 books in 2013.

To support the cause, bring your new or gently used children’s books to Barrington Bank & Trust, 201 S. Hough St., Barrington, from Sunday through Aug. 16.
