TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - February is the love of reading month and to celebrate Amphitheater elementary schools.

All students are getting to enjoy over 300 brand new books thanks to Bob and Peggy Niles.  They said it was a quick decision to put their money into books.

The Niles say they both love to read and want to pass that passion on to the children.

"It's certainly fun to see the kids enjoy a book and it is the key to our future really," said Bob Niles.

All the books are Newberry and Caldecott award winning titles and stem-related stories.
