South Tahoe High library seeks community’s help for new books

South Tahoe High School needs 175 new books for its library to provide students and teachers with the resources they need for reading, research and curriculum supplements.

“The library plays a critical role in increasing literacy and test scores among students, as well as contributing to the lifelong joy of reading,” said Douglas Dilts, the school’s librarian. “It is critical that we keep our library collection current and relevant.”

The library is looking to parents, community members and businesses for help in raising the needed funds. The school is participating in a new online fundraising program called Funds4Books, sponsored by Mackin Educational Resources, a school library and classroom vendor with 26 years of experience.

For every $15 donated, the library can purchase a new book that is ready to be shelved and checked out, and 100 percent of every donation goes to the library.

The fundraiser will run from April 7 through May 19. To participate, visit the library Web site at and click on “Funds4Books.” Donors then log in to South Tahoe High School’s fundraising page with the code 135f. Donations can be made online with a credit card, or by giving a check to the library.

“We are so excited this new fundraising program is available for schools to raise much-needed money to purchase books and other learning materials,” said Ivone Larson, school principal. “We appreciate the support of our community in helping our library.

“If everyone gives a little, we can reach our goal of 175 books,” she added. “These new books will be a great benefit to our students.”
