National Week 2012

International Book Giving Day!

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Today, February 14 is International Book Giving Day, a volunteer initiative to give kids better access to books and promote a love of reading. The main idea is simple, give a book to a child. The project offers three ways to do this:

  • Give a book to a friend or relative

  • Leave a book in a waiting room or lobby for a child to read

  • Donate a book to a local library, hospital, shelter or to an organisation that distributes books to children internationally

The books can be second hand, borrowed, signed, inscribed, electronic or print. Giving a book is giving a book.

You can connect with people celebrating International Book Giving Day by heading to their Facebook and Twitter pages. To grab a bookplate to put on the book you are giving away, free downloadable posters, share photos and to register head to the website.

Let's get as many books to children as we can today!
