Barnes & Noble Booksellers Donates 1 Million Books to Children in Need
The world’s largest bookseller, Barnes & Noble, Inc. announced last week that it had collected over one million books to be donated to children all across the United States. During its 2010 Holiday Book Drive, which took place November 1st thru January 1st, customers were able to purchase a book to be donated to America’s neediest children.
The books have already started to be distributed to these children through their schools, libraries and social service organizations, including The Children’s Aid Society.
“This holiday tradition is a wonderful way for booksellers and customers to come together and give the gift of reading to children in their local communities,” said Sarah DiFrancesco, director of Community Relations for Barnes & Noble.
We are grateful to Barnes & Noble and its customers for the generous donation!
