World Book Night US

 On World Book Night, 25,000 book givers each give away 20 copies of a specially-printed, not-for-resale World Book Night US edition of a book they have read and loved, chosen from a list of 30 titles selected by a panel of librarians and booksellers. The volunteer book givers personally hand out their copies to complete strangers, people who may never have owned a book of their own. Libraries and bookstores support this event as organizational participants, forming a nationwide advocacy and distribution network.

The Elizabeth Library will be participating as a distributor for book givers for the April 23, 2013 World Book Night US. We encourage the community to participate by going online and applying to be a book giver. Choose us as your box pick up location. Deadline to apply is January 23, 2013.
