Taylor Donates 6,000 Books to Library in Reading, Pa.

The country superstar grew up in nearby Wyomissing, Pa., before she moved to Nashville.

Taylor Swift has made it easier for kids to be reading in Reading—Reading, Pa., that is, which is right near the small Pennsylvania town of Wyomissing where Taylor spent her pre-teen years.

So Taylor has donated 6,000 books to the library in Reading, the Associated Press reports.

The country superstar didn't make it to the event yesterday (Oct. 13), but her reps told librarians that Taylor wants to help libraries that might be in financial trouble. And the town of Reading has had its money issues recently.

The Taylor-donated books will be marked with a white star on the spine and a sticker inside. Staffers hope that Taylor will prove to be the Oprah Winfrey for kids, motivating them to read books by giving her sticker of approval.
