SF students get present: 1,000 new books 

Students at Marshall Elementary School will receive a late Christmas present this year: 1,000 free books.

The national nonprofit First Book, which partnered with employees of the Taj Campton Place Hotel, is donating the books to the school, according to the San Francisco Unified School District.

At the school Tuesday at 10 a.m., the employees — who are working with the nonprofit to bring 10,000 books to students across California — are set to read to third-grade students from the books “Olivia Forms a Band” by Ian Falconer and “Mahalia Mouse Goes to College” by John Lithgow.

“The books will be placed in the school’s library, used in the school’s read-a-thon, and students will also be able to bring home books to keep,” the district said.
