Joining the nearly 200 actors, musicians, and cultural icons who have participated in the American Library Association (ALA) Celebrity READ poster campaign since 1985, seven-time GRAMMY® winner Taylor Swift appears on a new READ poster. Other celebrities who have starred in this ads include Robert de Niro, Daniel Radcliffe, Orlando Bloom, and Keira Knightley, to name only a few.

A passionate supporter of literacy and libraries, Swift partnered with Scholastic Books to make generous book donations to the public library in her home town of Reading, Penn., as well as her current hometown of Nashville, Tenn.

Besides being named Billboard’s reigning “Artist of the Year,” Swift has also become quite the little actress. She voiced the character of Audrey in Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax and will next star is starring as Rosemary in The Giver, opposite Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgard, and Katie Holmes. Swift’s participation in the movie and television business doesn’t end there. She also contributed two songs to the soundtrack of The Hunger Games, guest-starred on CSI, and hosted Saturday Night Live.


The Giver is based on Lois Lowry’s 1994 Newbery Medal-winning YA novel and hits theaters on August 15.
