CHAMPAIGN -- Schools join Barnes and Noble to fill their libraries. Students spent Saturday acting out fairy tales. Teachers also had story time.

It's part of a fundraiser to get more books for school libraries. Librarians already have them picked out and people at the store decided which ones they want to buy and donate.

"I really enjoy going and seeing people looking through the boxes for our school and other schools," said librarian Laura Lowe. "Making sure people are excited about reading."

The event is also a chance to encourage reading. It goes through Sunday, April 14.
