Book Drive 

It’s a gift any teacher would approve.Many kids in need may not receive books this holiday season, so Borders in Bangor has teamed up with Penquis Cap for a book drive.Borders staff encourage customers to donate a book of their choice, or choose one of several already selected.Average prices range from $7.00 to $16.00. There are many book titles and topics.The folks at Borders say customers are more likely to donate a book than a toy, due to its educational value.The drive started November 14th, and will continue until December 24th.Once collected, the books will be distributed by Penquis Cap to children and families throughout the Bangor area.One thousand books were collected during a similar drive in August.
