Barnes & Noble Holiday Book Drive

The Manchester Barnes and Noble book store at 1741 South Willow Street has chosen the Manchester School District to be the recipient of its 2013 Holiday Book Drive. Look for displays at the front of the store in the check out area for "wish list" books for Central High School. Making a donation is as easy as picking up a book and bringing it to the register.  Barnes and Noble has already delivered 15 books from our "wish list" to Central.  Thank you to our generous donors!  The holiday drive is taking place from now through December 24. 

Update:  The Book Drive has finished and we are so thankful to Barnes & Noble and to the friends of Central High School.  We received 36 books.  They have been processed and are proudly displayed on our New Books shelf.  Some of the titles we received include:

ü  The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
