"I was told by my parents, 'You can dance, you can do entertainment, but you study just as much.' So I wasn't really allowed to do anything unless I got good grades and studies, and I'm really glad that my parents taught me to do that," said WWE star Diva Layla.
Hardy and Layla got a grand welcome at the Lincoln Heights Library where hundreds of children and their parents gathered for the Summer Slam Reading Rally.
Kids who brought their library cards received the WWE stars' autographs.
They say their objective is to inspire young minds.
