World Book Night, April 23, 2012
Book Lovers needed!!! World Book Night (WBN) is April 23rd. On this night, tens of thousands of people go out into their communities to spread the joy and love of reading by giving out free WBN paperbacks.
This is our first year participating in this event, and we have selected “The Book Thief” of the 30 available titles as our book to distribute to 20 students somewhere on campus. The books are provided for free courtesy of the World Book Night organization.

These are some photos we took of the books on display after they arrived, with our wonderful student workers from the circulation desk whom decorated our WBN bookmarks with graffiti, and two of the twenty students that received a copy of The Book Thief.
