Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook opened his ninth reading room at Spencer Elementary School on Friday afternoon as he continues his work to help the youth of today.

Russell's Reading Room, as they are called, aims to help children educate themselves through reading, and speaking at the event, Westbrook was amazed at how he is able to help the children.

"It’s crazy, you’d never imagine it that over many years that I’d be able to impact kids in different ways,” Westbrook said, as per the Oklahoma City Thunder website. “To be able to do it through reading is a blessing for me and something I don’t take for granted.”
