Barnes & Noble Shreveport invites customers to give the gift of reading to children in need during the company’s annual Holiday Book Drive

For the second year, Step Forward is thrilled to partner with Barnes & Noble Shreveport for their Holiday Book Drive. Between November 1 and December 31, community members are invited to purchase books that will help fill Step Forwards six Little Free Libraries.

Donations collected from the drive will go towards Step Forward’s Early Literacy programs and six Little Free Libraries that serve over 2,000 children in Caddo and Bossier Parishes.

“Access to books in a child’s home is a critical necessity for developing reading skills,” says Kirk Reedstrom Step Forward’s Community Engagement Coordinator. “We’re especially excited to help provide new books for children.”
