Rockford's Half Price Book store gave back to the local community Tuesday with thousands children's books.
The books were gathered from the public during the 16th annual Half Pint Library Book Drive. The company then matched every book donated.
On Tuesday, area non-profit organizations and schools were invited to pick up their share of the books, which were available while supplies lasted. The store expected to hand out about 5,000 books in all.
