Taylor Swift is known for spreading her good fortune around and this time, the Nashville Public Library system is the lucky recipient of her generosity. She has donated 14,000 Scholastic books, the largest donation ever received by NPL, to the library system.
The books will be available for checkout at each of the 21 branches. Some of the books will be donated to low-income children, pre-schools and daycare centers while still others will be used as prizes for completing the summer reading program.
Taylor’s donation will provide incentive to encourage children to read. Each book will have a donation plate on the inside cover that will read: “A Gift to the Children of Nashville from Taylor Swift and Scholastic Inc.”
In other Taylor Swift news, Taylor won’t be starring as Eponine in the movie version of Les Miserables after all, reports the LA Times. British actress Samantha Barks has been cast in the role.
