Let's Transform School Libraries!

Tahoe libraries need your help!

Schools have not had funding for new books for decades. The book pictured above comes directly from the Sierra House Library. Many of the books are in similar shape.

We are so grateful for the help of CuppaTahoe on this effort!

The Marcella Foundation has agreed to match every dollar that you donate! All proceeds go directly to purchasing new books for school libraries.


  • We get high interest, high quality, fun reading materials to kids in Tahoe.

  • Support classroom libraries and classroom book clubs so that kids can have an opportunity to enjoy reading with friends.

  • Incentivize reading through community-wide outreach, fun literacy events, bookmobiles, and education and outreach to parents.


We commit to working collaboratively with libraries, teachers, school districts, and families to implement creative solutions that foster the love of reading.


Every dollar donated goes directly to projects. All of our board and staff are volunteers.

“We want to say thank you, Lift Literature. Because of you, we feel hopeful. Because of you, we feel that we can dream BIG for our students and their lives. Because of you, we feel like we are lifted and supported by others who care and want to dream BIG right along with us.” - STMS English Teachers
