Barnes and Noble 2013 Book Drive

The Manchester Barnes and Noble book store at 1741 South Willow Street has chosen the Manchester School District to be the recipient of its 2013 Holiday Book Drive. Look for displays at the front of the store in the check out area for "wish list" books as well as suggested items for local schools. Making a donation is as easy as picking up a book and bringing it to the register and Barnes and Noble will deliver purchased books to schools. The holiday drive is taking place from now through December 24.

Several schools are also holding Barnes and Nobles Book Fairs throughout the month of December. Barnes and Noble will donate a percentage of the day's cash register receipts to participating schools.  Join your community schools for after school and evening events at the Barnes and Noble book store!  Online Ordering:
