Want to be a World Book Night book giver on April 23, 2014, in support of literacy and community?
It's Shakespeare's birthday, and 25,000 volunteers will go out on one day and give a half million specially-printed paperbacks to readers across America, free of charge.
Apply to be a book giver at www.worldbooknight.org. Read up on the guidelines and list of books available, and then apply. Great River Regional Library is a library partner in the effort, and our staff will be helping coordinate delivery and distribution in this area. You will probably be able to pick up your box of 20 books through your local branch location.
The organizers are trying to reach new readers, so you'll be asked where you intend to give out books, to whom you intend to give books, and why you want to participate.
Your application must be submitted by Jan. 5, 2014.
