School librarians selected towers of tomes for their 1,000 Book Clubs, thanks for generous customers during Barnes and Noble's Holiday Book Drive. Over 2,300 new books now have new homes in 18 local schools.
The sheer volume of books is a result of Barnes & Noble Saratoga Springs’ annual Holiday Book Drive, though which generous customers “give the gift of reading.”
Barnes & Noble coordinates the book delivery to each school with the help of the WSWHE BOCES School Library Services. The books will be used for each school’s 1,000 Book Club, which is a reading program designed for preschoolers, kindergartners, and their families.
