Collecting books is fun - so is volunteering in our warehouse!

Bernie's Book Bank relies on hundreds of volunteers to sort, sticker and bag collections of books for at-risk children. It's fun, easy, not messy or physically taxing, and very rewarding.

We welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities.

We encourage groups of any size to spend their community service hours sorting and bagging books for us. We can schedule special sessions for groups of eight (8) or more. We also have volunteer drop-in hours.

For more information about volunteering, check out our website at

When you volunteer for Bernie's Book Bank, it is our goal to ensure that you receive much MORE than you give.

NOTE! We are closed on the following dates around the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays: Nov 26-27, Dec 24-26
