Barnes & Noble Drive To Benefit PBC Schools

Barnes & Noble stores across the country, including the five stores in Palm Beach County, are enticing their customers to give the gift of reading to children in need during its annual Holiday Book Drive, taking place now through Dec. 24. In the western communities, Barnes & Noble is located at 10500 W. Forest Hill Blvd., near the Mall at Wellington Green.

The Barnes & Noble Holiday Book Drive provides an opportunity for customers to donate books for at-risk schools in Palm Beach County through local stores.

Holiday Book Drive recipients throughout the country include schools, libraries, literacy organizations, family social service agencies and homeless centers. This year, Barnes & Noble stores in Palm Beach County, will be collecting books for the School District of Palm Beach County.

Barnes & Noble officials have worked closely with school district staff to identify the schools where the books are needed the most.
