World Book Night in Staples

World Book Night in Staples

Staples Book Club members LaVonne Selleck and Evelyn Killian volunteered with Library Assistant & Book Club Facilitator Bev Anderson in distributing books at Jon's Family Foods for the World Book Night event. It didn't take long for the books to disappear! LaVonne, Evelyn and Bev were a part of a group of 25,000 volunteers going out into 6,000 towns and cities across America. Each registered volunteer received a box containing 20 books to give away in order to encourage reading. Numerous libraries in the Great River Regional Library system took part in the event.
