Barnes and Noble Holiday Book Drive Kick Off

To kick off their annual Holiday Book Drive, Barnes and Noble in Deptford, NJ, hosted a special Story Time event featuring The Cooper Foundation and Children’s Regional Hospital at Cooper leadership and staff reading their favorite children’s books aloud.

Last year, Barnes and Noble donated nearly 1.5 million books to more than 650 local charities around the country. All books donated by customers at the Deptford store during this holiday season’s drive will be given to Children’s Regional Hospital at Cooper. The drive takes place November 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015.
