KOAT Book Drive

Nusenda Credit Union is proud to partner with KOAT-TV Channel 7 for their first annual Book Drive. This partnership upholds the credit union philosophy of “people helping people” as we work to support education and economic opportunity in the communities we call home.

Research has shown that reading daily to your child is an essential way to prepare them for school success. Nusenda, KOAT, Barnes and Noble, Read to Me and Libros For Kids are joining together to help kids read and succeed.

Book Drive Details:

  • Donations will be collected from July 5 – 25
  • Drop your new and gently used books at any Barnes and Noble in Albuquerque or Las Cruces. Or purchase them in-store to donate!
  • Monetary donations will be accepted online through United Way of Central New Mexico.


Nusenda branches will not be accepting physical or monetary donations in our branches.
Read to Me and Libros For Kids will distribute the books collected and purchase new reading materials for statewide distribution.
