My World Book Night Experience…@wbnamerica

wbn_bdaycakeMy World Book Night experience was great and I really enjoyed handing out the books to students. Many students were surprised to have some random person hand a book to them, but none the less they took the book. The feedback from other book givers in the library was positive as well. I am happy to hear some book recipients were planning to give books to others or share it with a family member or friend. Swapping a book or passing it along is one of the best things about reading. My mother swaps and gives books away to friends and coworkers once she is done. I look forward to participating in World Book Night in 2014!

Tomorrow is World Book Night!

Hi res WBN logo 2013I am excited about participating in World Book Night. My library is participating as a group of givers. Some of the titles we will be passing out are The Alchemist, The House on Mango Street, The Lightening Thief, The Handmaid’s Tale, Glaciers…this is a wonderful event! How often do you get to pass out freshly printed books to unsuspecting students? 🙂

World Book Night US 2013 is April 23, 2013

Hi res WBN logo 2013I am looking forward to passing out free books for World Book Night at Wright College. A student came up to my colleague last week, and she was so excited about WBN! She wanted to make sure she had the right day and time for the event. She said her public library was far away, and she read all the books she owned. So, she was excited to get a new book!
