Get Ready for World Book Night on April 23, 2013

Calling ALL parents! Was your resolution for 2013 to spread the love of reading throughout your community? If you answered YES, then we can help, World Book Night is looking for volunteers just like you.

World Book Night is a celebration of literacy by publishers, booksellers, libraries and individuals who love reading. On World Book Night, volunteer book givers distribute 20 copies of a special edition not-for-resale book they've read and loved to strangers in their communities - people at rec centers, bus stops and restaurants - who may never have owned a book before.

In 2012, More than 80,000 volunteers in the United States, the UK, Ireland and Germany distributed more than 2.5 million books. So, mark your calendars for Shakespeare's birthday, April 23rd, and help make a difference in your community this year.


To learn more about World Book Night and apply to be a book giver, visit the World Book Night U.S. website.

Don't delay - the deadline for applications is Friday, January 25th. Sign up today so you and your family can help us share the joy of reading!
