2014 Barnes & Noble Holiday Book Drive
Posted on 11.03.2014, Monday

We are pleased to announce the 2014 Barnes & Noble Holiday Book Drive has begun! This is our ninth year partnering with Barnes & Noble at the Streets at Southpoint to collect books for young Durham County children. During last year’s book drive we collected nearly 3,400 books that we distributed to 19 organizations helping young children. With your help, we hope to share the gift of literacy with even more children this year!image

Here’s how you can help:

  • Visit Barnes & Noble at the Streets at Southpoint any time before December 31st to buy a book for a young child. The Partnership collects and distributes the books throughout the community.
  • Visit Partnership staff and volunteers at the store on Friday, December 12thwhere we will be wrapping gifts for Barnes & Noble customers.
  • Let us know of community agencies that could benefit from donated books.
  • Spread the word and urge others to support this cause!

If you know of organizations in Durham that could use donated books for children, please contact Elaine Erteschik. If you’re interested in getting more involved with this year’s Book Drive, please contact Krissy Dunn to learn about other volunteer opportunities.

Thanks for helping us share a love of reading this holiday season!
