Date: Now through January 1, 2014
Location: Barnes & Noble at CherryVale Mall | 7200 Harrison, Rockford, Illinois

Barnes & Noble and United Way of Rock River Valley are teaming up this holiday season for a drive to provide books to every student in schools throughout the Rock River Valley community. During the months of November and December, Barnes & Noble at Cherryvale Mall will ask customers to purchase a book for children birth to high school age. United Way will then distribute the books through its school readiness and early grade reading programs.

United Way's school readiness and early grade reading programs focus on children at the infant to third grade level. Customers are encouraged to purchase book titles for children through high school grade level, however. Bilingual titles are also requested. The Holiday Book Drive runs through January 1, 2014.
