(Victorville)- – 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 now through January 1, 2012. The Barnes & Noble Holiday Book Drive provides an opportunity for customers to donate books through locally designated non-profit organizations.
“Just pick up an extra book while you are there. Barnes & Noble and the Rotary Club of Apple Valley will make sure it ends up with a needy child right in our community,” said Scott Nassif, president of Apple Valley Rotary.
Holiday Book Drive recipients throughout the country include schools, libraries, literacy organizations, family social service agencies and homeless centers. This year, the Victorville Barnes & Noble, located at the Victor Valley Mall will be collecting books for the ROTARY CLUB OF APPLE VALLEY.
“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 non-profit beneficiary, the donations are very personal.”
