Last Wednesday, singer and songwriter and all-around badass Taylor Swift donated 25,000 new books to New York City schools in need through a partnership with Scholastic.

Twenty-five schools will each receive 1,000 new children's books through the Scholastic Possible Fund as a result of Taylor's support of the Company's "Open a World of Possible," initiative, designed to promote independent reading among all children.

Swift's donation supports Scholastic's "Open a World of Possible" reading initiative and campaign, which aims to inspire a lifelong love of learning and independent reading in children.

"Scholastic is honored to join with Taylor Swift who continues to show a passion for literacy and a commitment to spreading the message of how influential books can be in a child's life," said Greg Worrell, President, Scholastic Education. "Through this donation, we aim to encourage independent reading which inspires a love of learning and to 'Open a World of Possible' for more New York City students by making sure they have access to the very best children's books."
