Taylor Swift donates books to Tennessee library

Taylor Swift has shown off her generous side by donating 14,000 books to a library in Tennessee.

The Love Story hitmaker is re-stocking the Nashville Public Library, while some of the new Scholastic titles will be sent to low-income children, pre-schools and daycare centres.

Each book will have a donation plate on the inside cover declaring: 'A Gift to the Children of Nashville from Taylor Swift and Scholastic Inc.'.

Swift has previously shown her support for literacy by donating $68,000-worth of reading material to a library in Pennsylvania.
