Group donates thousands of books to Chicago schools

Chicago Public Schools are receiving more than 130,000 books thanks to a non-profit organization called "Rock for Reading."

The books are from Borders book stores that recently closed and school staff members are sorting through the books at a warehouse.

They plan to distribute the books to schools around the city for classrooms and libraries.

Students may also receive books for their own personal use.

The donation comes through a partnership between "Hilco Trading Company" and "Creating a Nation of Readers."
