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 light or non-readers across America. Apply to be a book giver! Go to www.us.worldbooknight.org, read up on the guidelines and list of books, and then apply!
This year, Milwaukee Public Library will act as a distribution center for people who sign up to be book givers. You can help by handing out the free books in your community on World Book Night. If you would like to be a part of the fun, simply go to the World Book Night website, choose three books you would like to hand out, and select the Central library as your distribution center. Deadline for applications is January 5th, 2014. Help us spread the love of reading throughout our community. Sign up to be a giver today!
