ANN ARBOR, Mich. Borders announced that it has provided more than 900,000 new books to children across the nation through its company-wide, community-based winter book drive. The books were purchased by Borders customers and then distributed by Borders and Waldenbooks stores to local non-profits across the country including UC Davis Children's Hospital, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Rock for Reading, Starlight Children's Foundation and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, among other organizations.

"As a retailer, it's very gratifying to play such a big part in providing children of all ages access to books.
