The 2016 Annual Barnes & Noble Holiday Book Drive starts today! This is our eleventh year partnering with Barnes & Noble at the Streets at Southpoint to collect books for young children. During last year’s book drive we collected nearly 3,500 books that we distributed to more than 20 organizations helping young children.

With your help, we hope to share the gift of reading with even more children this year!

Here’s how you can help:

  • Visit Barnes & Noble at the Streets at Southpoint from November 1st-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 9th where 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.

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