Kalamazoo, MI –

Donate books to Ready to Read, Kalamazoo Public Library’s early childhood literacy program, at Barnes & Noble during its annual Holiday Book Drive, from November 1 to January 10.

Barnes & Noble stores across the country invite customers to give the gift of reading to children with the launch of its annual Holiday Book Drive. The Holiday Book Drive offers customers the opportunity to donate books to 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 local Barnes & Noble, 6134 S. Westnedge Ave., will collect books for Ready to Read.

“Each Barnes & Noble can partner with a non-profit local organization of its choice to benefit from the Holiday Book Drive. It’s a great opportunity for our stores and customers to come together to donate new books for children in the community who really need them,” said Sarah DiFrancesco, community relations director. “On a national level, Barnes & Noble will make donations to literacy charities across the country.”

To learn more or find out how to participate in the Holiday Book Drive, call Kirsten Fredrickson, Barnes & Noble’s local community relations manager, 269-327-9589.
