Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- Congressman Sean Duffy stopped at the University of Wisconsin Superior today and personally helped deliver new books to the Jim Dan Hill Library.

The university lost around 100,000 books in the June 2012 floods.

Congressman Duffy brought in 500 books from the Library of Congress as part of a pilot project that distributes extra books.

Duffy says the campus told them what types of books they need and they provided a specific genre.

The Congressman will work with a team to analyze the needs of the library for possible future shipments of more books.

"This will just help offset the cost of rebuilding a library after a really devastating flood here in our community. I thought it was great that we could use these resources that the federal government has and the library of congress to help our local community and right here on the college campus," said Congressman Duffy.

Duffy also met with students and community members during a "Coffee with the Congressman" event at the Yellowjacket Union.
