World Book Night

April 23, 2014

World Book Night Is Upon Us!

Help us celebrate reading as a community. We will have refreshments and events happening in all three of our meeting rooms that are related to one of the titles. Don't forget to pick up your FREE copy of one of the books for this year!

What is World Book Night?

World Book Night is "an annual celebration dedicated to spreading the love of reading, person to person. Each year on April 23, tens of thousands of people go out into their communities and give half a million free World Book Night paperbacks to light and non-readers.

World Book Night is about giving books and encouraging reading in those who don’t regularly do so. But it is also about more than that: It’s about people, communities and connections, about reaching out to others and touching lives in the simplest of ways—through the sharing of stories.

World Book Night is a nonprofit organization. We exist because of the support of thousands of book givers, booksellers, librarians, and financial supporters who believe in our mission. Successfully launched in the U.K. in 2011, World Book Night was first celebrated in the U.S. in 2012. Thank you to our U.K. friends for such a wonderful idea!"
