Books On First
Local and community is what Books on First and Sauk Valley Bank are about. When we opened in 1998, all the banks in Dixon were local, so choosing a banker was based on other factors. That’s less true today. Through the years, we saw how community-oriented SVB is, sponsoring local programs, and supporting local businesses. That’s the reason why we began doing business with SVB.
During the 2020 pandemic shutdowns, SVB kept us in mind, providing a source for the PPP Loan application and nominating Books on First for a community grant so that we could make it through. We appreciate SVB being here for us.

The staff of SVB is always at the ready to help fill volunteer needs for Sterling Main Street’s community events which bring people to the downtown business district and to the small businesses located here.

Merle Norman Sterling
We used SVB’s Cash Management services. I realized when I was on vacation that I forgot to sign payroll checks. One call to the accountant and the other call to SVB and Cassandra Salmon came to the rescue with direct deposit.
I’ll always remember how important each and every client is to SVB I remember one super busy holiday open house, Tara came in on a Friday night and came back on Saturday to make sure our terminal was up and running.
