We are pleased to announce that the 2015 Barnes & Noble Holiday Book Drive begins this Sunday! This is our tenth 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 2,700 books that we distributed to 20 organizations helping young children. With your help, we hope to share the gift of literacy 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 11thwhere 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 Davida Major to learn more about volunteer opportunities.

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