The American Red Cross will be hosting at blood drive at the Bartholomew County Public Library from 2 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday.

The agency says there is a critical need for O positive, O negative and B negative blood types. To schedule an appointment time you can call 1-800 RED CROSS or go to www.redcrossblood dot org and enter the sponsor code bartholomewcountylibrary.

Mary Clare Specker with the library says that donors will receive a “book buck” that can be used in the library’s ongoing used book sale.
