What a lot of

Books to share!

We're very excited to announce that we at City Lit Books are partnering with Bernie's Book Bank for the month of June to collect new and gently used books for kids of all ages, newborn up to sixth grade. Starting June 1st and running through the 30th, you can drop off any children’s books you’ve got collecting dust on your shelves, or buy books from us to donate. Our table in the children's section will be devoted to suggested picks, but we're happy with any books you'd love to give. No need to pack anything up—we’ll have collection boxes waiting for you.

Bernie's Book Bank collects, 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. Their work helps kids build full libraries to love and cherish for years to come. Check out their website to see who they are and how they work.

Stay tuned for details about our June 4th popup at the Logan Square Farmers’ Market, where we’ll be happy to talk books and book banks alike. Happy Spring!
