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, 2012 to January 1, 2013. 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 at Carolina Place Mall in Pineville, located at 11055 Carolina Place Parkway Pineville, NC 28134 will be collecting books for Charlotte Family Housing and Read To Me Charlotte at The Charlotte Mecklenburg Library.
“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 nonprofit beneficiary, the donations are very personal.”
