Who is helping give out half a million free books across America on April 23rd?
World Book Night U.S. is an ambitious campaign to give thousands of free, specially printed paperbacks to light or nonreaders across America on one day. Volunteer book lovers help promote reading by going out into their communities and sharing free copies of books they love. The mission of World Book Night is to seek out those without the means or access to printed books.
Some of the volunteers in our community will be picking up their books at Rodman Library and sharing them in locations as diverse as VA hospitals, roller skating rinks, mass transit, nursing homes, schools, food pantries, and more. We at Rodman Public Library and The University of Mount Union are proud to be partners in World Book Night U.S. for a third year. (jmh)
