Shelley Lund of Smitty’s Ace Hardware said students at Sunset Elementary School were giddy with excitement when representatives from the Hermiston business delivered 500 books last week.

Store owners Randy and Tammy Smith donated the books, which provides students with an opportunity to enjoy some summer reading. Store employee Niki Garhart-Gonzalez said her daughter, Myah Gonzalez, was among the students who received a book at the school.

“I think this is so great,” Garhart-Gonzalez said.
