World Book Night 2013--It's Time!!!

Remember last January, when we started talking about the first World Book Night that would be held in the US?  Great news! The event was a huge success, and the publishing industry is excited to bring it back for a second year.  And it's officially time to get World Book Night 2013 under way!  As of today, the application to be a book giver is available online.
For those of you who missed it, World Book Night is an event sponsored by publishers where volunteers are given boxes with 20 copies of a book that are theirs to give away.  The goal is to get a great book into the hands of someone who might not otherwise own a book, and in doing so, hopefully spread the love of reading.
If you have any questions, feel free to call the Reference Desk at 355-3720 or check out the WBN Frequently Asked Questions page.
