World Book Night Giver Reception

Event date: 
Sunday, April 21, 2013 - 2:00pm

On
April 23, 2013, 25,000 volunteers from Berkeley to Boston and Sitka to
Sarasota will give away half a million free books in more than 6,000
towns and cities across the country.  

 

World
Book Night U.S. is an ambitious campaign to give thousands of free,
specially printed paperbacks to light or nonreaders across America on
one day. Volunteer book lovers help promote reading by going out into
their communities and sharing free copies of books they love. The
mission of World Book Night is to seek out those without the means or
access to printed books.

 

Some of the volunteers in our community will be picking up their books at A Room of One's Own and sharing them in locations as diverse as VA hospitals, roller skating rinks, mass transit, nursing homes, schools, food pantries, and more. We at Room are proud to be a partner in World Book Night U.S. for a second year.

 

We will be holding a pre-World Book Night reception the week before April 23. On Sunday, April 21st at 2:00pm,
we are welcoming our local givers for a reception including light
refreshments so you can chat with one another and share your ideas for
distribution. If you can't make this time but have signed up to pick
books up here at the store, don't worry--you
can pick your box of books up any time that week, with a goal of
getting them distributed as close to the official April 23rd World Book
Night as you can.
