DRACUT -- Residents are being asked to contribute to the Great Readers Start Young Book Drive.

Aiming to supply gently used books to children younger than 5, the Great Readers Start Young Book Drive was conceived and organized by a Dracut Junior High School student as a community-service project to benefit Community Teamwork Inc., of Lowell.

Donated books may be dropped off through March 1 at Lakeview Junior High's main office, at 1570 Lakeview Ave., in Dracut.
