APPLETON - More than 3,500 books were given away to children Tuesday in Appleton.
The distribution is sponsored by Half Price Books. It's part of the company's Half Pint Library Book Drive.
Last month customers could drop off books at the Appleton store. Each book donated by the public was matched by Half Price Books.
Tuesday, people from schools and organizations came to pick up some free boxes of books.
