Teachers will receive tens of thousands of free books for their classrooms at a giveaway Saturday at Hillsborough High School.

The event, from 9 am to 1 p.m., is open to anyone who works at a Title 1 school, or has students who are English language learners, in exceptional student education, or from active military families.

At the last such event in December, 40,000 books were given away.

The nonprofit First Book, the Hillsborough Alliance for Public Schools and the Hillsborough Classroom Teachers Association are some of the organizations involved. 

To kick off the event Friday morning, books were distributed at Mendenhall Elementary School in South Tampa.
