PORTLAND — A book drive resulted in more than 1,000 books being donated to the Portland Public Schools.

Books-A-Million, at 430 Gorham Road in South Portland, hosted the drive where customers were asked if they wanted to donate a book or two towards the school libraries. All told, 1,132 books on librarian wish lists were donated.

It was the largest summer drive the national chain has done so far, according to a press release from the School Department.
