And they've enlisted multi-Platinum selling rapper Ludacris to help.
Luda and DoSomething.org are asking young people across America to collect books to help restock library shelves in New Orleans.
Kids can register their book drives at EpicBookDrive.com. To help sweeten the deal, the school that collects the most books will win a $1000 donation to bulk up their own library, as well as a party for the entire student body. In addition, all participating kids will be entered to win a $500 college scholarship and books signed by Ludacris and his celebrity friends.
The Recovery School District of New Orleans currently serves more than 30,000 students at traditional public and public charter schools across the city.
