Barnes & Noble December Book Drive to Benefit Clubs

Tuesday, November 30, 2010


Bel Air, MD (Nov 29, 2010)- During the month of December 2010 customers at Barnes & Noble in Bel Air, MD will be able to donate purchased books to local Clubs.

In partnering with Barnes & Noble this holiday season Boys & Girls Clubs continues to emphasize the importance of every young person achieving academic success.  "When individuals think back about to their childhood and the first book they could read it was a magically moment" said Randy Acosta, Executive Director, "it is that same moment in the life of the youth we serve when they have the chance to own, for some, their first book.".

Any county resident can help by sharing the gift of a book at the Bel Air store checkout.   The books collected this holiday season will go directly to youth served at the Clubs four branches in Harford County.  In addition books will be used to boosting the Clubs reading room collections to encourage year long reading.

About the Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County: The Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County was established in 1989 by a group of concerned citizens in the Aberdeen area. In its 20 year history, it has grown to 4 sites throughout Harford County and now serves more than 400 children and teens on a daily basis. Our mission is to inspire and enable all youth, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. The Club is open to all youth ages 6 to 18 and provides positive youth development programs in five core areas: Character and Leadership Development; Health & Life Skills; Education & Career Development; the Arts; and Sports, Fitness and Recreation.
