STAIR Honored by Barnes & Noble Holiday Book Drive

During their annual Holiday Book Drive, Barnes & Noble stores ask their customers to donate books to charities across the country to provide for those in need. This year we are excited to report that Barnes & Noble, located in the Annapolis Harbour Center, has chosen STAIR – Annapolis as the recipient of books collected during the book drive which runs from Thursday, November 1 through Monday, December 31.

The book donations will fill a need for STAIR students who live in underserved communities in Anne Arundel County. Pictured below, Kathy McDevitt, STAIR tutor at Eastport Community Center, accepts the first delivery of over 125 donated books for our students. Along with Kathy are Lynne and Lisa, Barnes & Noble employees. The Book Drive ends on December 31, 2018. Thank you to the customers and staff of Barnes & Noble!
