Note from Brian

Dear Fellow Berniacs:
 
Can you believe it is September!?
 
We have had an incredible summer and we hope you have as well.

To date, we have distributed more than 2 MILLION quality books to at-risk children all over Chicagoland this year; this is 500,000 more books than we distributed in all of last year.

Readers are blossoming and growing all over Chicagoland and we are loving it!
 
Our fall distributions have begun and the children we serve have never been more eager to read.

Thanks to YOU; they have this opportunity-THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!

Brian Floriani, Founder & Executive Director
