Barnes & Noble Customers Give the Gift of Reading to Children
Barnes & Noble stores across the country invite customers to give the gift of reading to children in need during its annual Holiday Book Drive, taking place from November 1, 2011 to January 1, 2012. The Barnes & Noble Holiday Book Drive provides an opportunity for customers to donate books through locally designated non-profit organizations.
Holiday Book Drive recipients throughout the country include schools, libraries, literacy organizations, family social service agencies and homeless centers. This year, the Barnes & Noble Gulfport, located at 15246 Crossroads Pkwy, will be collecting books for Lynn Meadows discovery Center Childrens Museum.
"The Holiday Book Drive is one of our most popular community partnerships," says Sarah DiFrancesco, director of community relations for Barnes & Noble. "Our booksellers and customers get to share the pure joy of giving a book to a child in need. And because each Barnes & Noble store chooses its local non-profit beneficiary, the donations are very personal."
Customer may choose any children's book or make a selection from those on hand at the register to purchase. Donated books will be gathered and delivered to Lynn Meadow Discovery Center.
To find out how to participate in the Holiday Book Drive, contact the Barnes & Noble Gulfport Community Relations Manager Linda Randolph at 228-832-8906
