PLYMOUTH, Minn.--Maria Keller is a seventh grader who loves books and was inspired to share her love of books with children around the world.

Maria's vision inspired Read Indeed, a non profit organization dedicated to collecting books and distributing them to children in need. Maria's goal is to collect 1,000,000 books and distribute them to children by the time she is 18. She has been collecting books since she was 8 years old.

Every day Maria gets closer to her goal and this summer Read Indeed has partnered with BMO Harris Bank to host a summer book drive to help her reach 1,000,000 books.

Participating in the drive is simple. Bring new or gently used books to any BMO Harris bank June 17-July 31. If you bring 25 books or more to any BMO Harris location you willreceivea pass to Waterpark of America. Limit 2 per household, while supplies last.
