At Children’s Aid, we are acutely aware of the importance of reading, and helping children develop a love of reading early on and sustaining it. So we are more than grateful to the generous customers and booksellers at the Barnes & Noble on West 82nd Street and Broadway for donating more than 2,000 books to our Early Childhood, School Age, and Adolescence programs through the store’s holiday book drive. Children’s Aid is overwhelmed by the response this book drive elicited, and we cannot thank our friends at the Barnes & Noble store on the Upper West Side enough for selecting us as a partner in literacy. We know our kids can’t wait to get their hands on these books, with titles ranging from The Very Hungry Caterpillar to Huckleberry Finn. Thank you, 82nd Street and Broadway Barnes & Noble, for helping us stock the bookshelves across our centers and community schools and for helping youth in our programs continue to realize their love of reading.
