Taylor Swift Donates 6,000 Books to Reading Public Library

Reading Eagle, 10/13/2011.

ExcerptSwift donated 6,000 books to the library, which has divided them equally among its main, northeast, northwest and southeast branches.

The books are worth $68,000, and will be available for patrons to borrow beginning Saturday. In six months, the books will be available for inter-library loans throughout Berks County.

Rankin of Shillington was in the children's department of the main branch in downtown Reading when the books there were unveiled Thursday, picking out a few novels she plans to read.

"I think it's amazing she did this for her community," Rankin said of Swift.

Library officials agree
