Silver Cross Hospital

The way you should be treated.™

NHBW is very passionate about their mission of serving others throughout the community specifically through their Literacy Program. NHBW and Silver Cross Hospital also work together to improve the literacy level in Joliet through the Reading for Life Literacy Program. In 2011, Silver Cross Hospital donated funds, furniture and computers to help establish the first NHBW & Silver Cross Reading Room in Joliet. Today, the Silver Cross Healthy Community Commission continues to support the program with annual grants and book donations to 9 locations in Joliet, Lockport and Bolingbrook.

In the Reading Rooms/Corners, children and parents are able to swap, borrow or take a book to keep in their own personal libraries. During the past three years, the Reading for Life Literacy Program provided more than 50,000 books to over 3,000 children and adults in the community.
