Photo Gallery - Barnes & Noble Book Giveaway

Barnes & Noble, the country's largest retail bookseller, recently gave away 500 brand new books to the children of Reading And Beyond. The event was held at Heaton Elementary School in Fresno.

The books went to students currently enrolled in Reading And Beyond's After-School Program. After a welcome message from Mark Halverson, a representative from Barnes Noble, the children were allowed to choose a selection of books for themselves and their younger siblings.

Halverson says that children always love getting new books. The fact that they get to choose their books is exciting. Often, they will also choose books for their younger sisters and brothers at home. Halverson is confident that events like this encourage kids to read more, which leads to better overall performance in school.

Reading And Beyond wishes to thank Halverson, and Barnes & Noble, for their generous gift.
