Give the gift of literacy at Barnes and Noble Calhoun and Maple Grove (pictures of kids reading)

Spread holiday cheer with books for the new year!

Need a fun and feel-good excuse to visit the children's section at Barnes & Noble this holiday season? We've got one! When you shop at the Calhoun or Maple Grove Barnes & Noble stores, you can pick out a book to purchase and donate to the Minnesota Literacy Council. And when you do, you can be guaranteed to put hundreds of smiles on the faces of our youngest readers.

Every year, the literacy council gives more than 10,000 books to kids -- many of whom have never owned their own book. We couldn't accomplish this without book drives from generous community members and corporate sponsors. Barnes & Noble returns with their book drive year after year to help us make Minnesota more literate!
