Barnes & Noble Book Drive

No child should go to sleep without a bedtime story.

Do you remember your first bedtime story? You may not be able to remember the title of the book, but maybe can recall the wonderful experience of being read to as you lay your sleepy head on your pillow.

Unfortunately, many young children in Columbus will not have these memories because there are no books in their homes.

Reach Out and Read at Nationwide Children’s Hospital provides as many as 10,000 books a month to our Primary Care Centers. For 2016, we will need 200,000 books to ensure every child who enters one of our centers gets a bedtime story.

We need your help.

This holiday season, don’t let a child go to sleep without a bedtime story. Visit a participating central Ohio Barnes & Noble location during November and December to purchase and donate a book to Nationwide Children's Hospital's Reach Out and Read program.
