ROCKFORD (WREX)- Teachers received a treat for Teacher Appreciation Week thanks to a local bookstore.

Half Price Books donated more than 5,000 books to nonprofit organizations and schools in need. The books were collected from the community during the 21st Annual Half Pint Library Book Drive.

The store matched the amount of books collected during that drive.

“We are just really happy to promote literacy,” said Chelsea Hall, Assistant Store manager at Half Price Books.

Books range from baby books to books for young adults.
