and#8220;The social studies classes really wanted to do a service project to benefit Red Cross and came up with the book drive idea,and#8221; said Marcia Tierney, North Tahoe School social studies teacher and event coordinator.

The book drive will be held in the dining commons at North Tahoe (Middle) School and will be organized and staffed by students, with the help of teachers and parents. Book purchasers will receive a canvas bag and snacks will be available for purchase.

Those interested in helping the students raise money can drop off books in the North Tahoe School entry foyer. Books of any kind, for any age will be accepted. Donations will be accepted up until the day of event, but Tierney encourages books to be dropped off a few days early so that students can have time to categorize.
