Catholic Central High School in Troy got a special delivery from the Library of Congress on Friday.

Rep. Paul Tonko donated 25 books from the library to the school. He says it's all part of a program aimed at helping schools across the country.

“The Library of Congress has a surplus book program that enables them to share one half of their resources,” Tonko said. “They get about 20,000 books a day that come into the library and they share about one half of them with schools, with libraries and with educational institutions across the country.”

Tonko says he checks with schools in his district to see what types of books they need and the Library of Congress tries help out. He says the books delivered Friday are both fiction and non-fiction.
