Finding a home for nearly 9,000 gently used books isn't easy. Just ask Lou Iori, a 16-year-old student at the British School of Chicago.

Lou is planning to spend every free minute in the next few weeks sorting through hundreds of boxes of books from the now-closed Archbishop Quigley Preparatory Seminary on Chestnut Street. Some of the books will be donated, and others will be sold to raise funds for charity.

Correction: This headline initially stated the boy's last name is Lori. The name is actually Iori. HuffPost regrets the error.
