FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - Navajo and Hopi nation schools are getting a massive book donation thanks to a Massachusetts-based nonprofit.

The Daily Times of Farmington, New Mexico, reports (https://goo.gl/vlbVbC) that Reader to Reader Inc. is donating about 22,000 books to five school districts in Arizona and New Mexico.

Reader to Reader Inc. executive director David Mazor says the half million dollar donation is the group’s biggest book donation ever.

Mazor attributed the large donation to the work the nonprofit has done to increased relationships with publishers.

Along with the donations made to the school districts, the Navajo Nation Library in Window Rock, Arizona, will receive more than 21,000 books.

Reader to Reader says it has donated more than $3 million to Navajo and Hopi schools in the last 11 years.
