Library customers had registered as book givers on the World Book Night website and they gave out copies of their free books to encourage non-regular readers to fall in love with reading. We’d like to thank all of them (pictured above, with apologies to Jan who isn’t in the photo) for making the evening such a success.
The following morning we received an email from one of our customers which said “World Book Night really works, my daughter who hasn’t picked up a book in years started reading one last night”.
World Book Night’s primary partners are the BBC, the Booksellers Association of UK and Ireland, the Publishers Association and the Reading Agency.
We’ve already been asked if we are doing it next year and it looks like it could become a regular event in our calendar.
