The University of St. Martin (USM) Library will be the beneficiary of the Book Drive that got underway Friday and is organized by two USM students as part of a final project for their degree.
The Book Drive runs from March 4th until March 25th and the drop-off zones are both Van Dorp stores on the ATh Illidge Road and Simpson Bay and the USM Library itself.
"The event is geared towards mainly children’s story books for ages 0 to 12. Text books for the education and other fields are also welcomed," say Book Driver organizers Robin Boasman and Shiera Richardson, who are also currently pursuing their bachelor degrees in Education.
"This project allows us to contribute our time and service in an area that focuses on Education (and fulfill the necessary requirements)," they added.
The books will be collected at the end of each week. Members of general public are being asked to donate unwanted used books to the USM Library rather than discarding them.
