You don't need to be big to make a difference. 12-year-old Maria Keller, an avid reader from Plymouth, is proof of that.
At 8-years-old, she held a book drive for kids in need. She made it her goal to collect 1 million books by the time she was 18.
Now 12, she is the founder of the non-profit Read Indeed and has collected nearly 800,000 books for kids.
The Junior League of Minneapolis will be holding a fundraiser called Books for Bowling to help her reach her goal.
Annalee Habstritt with the Junior League of Minneapolis stopped by to talk about it.
Books for Bowling will go from 12:30 to 4 at the Park Tavern in St. Louis Park on Sunday. The cost is $10 or 10 books and any combination of the two.
