The Bank of Oklahoma, Junior League of Oklahoma City and Barnes & Nobles joined forces for the fifth annual Oklahoma City Book Drive.

Books can be dropped off at any one of the 32 Bank of Oklahoma locations around the Oklahoma City area. The books will be collected by the Junior League, sorted and distributed them while supplies last.

The Bank of Oklahoma presented a $1,500 check to the Junior League for books at the NEWS 9 studio Thursday morning.

Non-profits can request books by calling 843-6067, Ext 518. and leaving your name, number and the type of books your organization needs.

Book fair vouchers can be used from June 23-30 and can be printed by going to www.jloc.org.

Some of the recipients of books last year included the OK County Juvenile Detention Center,
VA Hospital, Mark Twain Elementary, and the Pauline Mayer Shelter.
