Reading has the potential

to inspire, comfort, or provide an escape from reality.

This holiday season B&N

is sharing their passion for books to children in need. Starting November 1st through the month of December, we are accepting donations of children books.

Participate in Barnes & Noble's

Holiday Book Drive and help provide books to service organizations, schools, and hospitals. Just visit your local B&N and give the gift of imagination.

When you donate a book

you are feeding a child’s imagination, encouraging creativity, and giving them a gift that will last past the holidays.

Help Us Reach Our Goal!


Last year, B&N donated over 1.2 million books to hundreds of charities across the country.
Donate a book so we can spread the wonder of reading to more children this year!

You can find your local store by visiting the Barnes & Noble Store Locator!
