World Book Night 2014 Evaluation Report

01 December 2014

The friday lads   warrington

World Book Night is an annual celebration of reading and books which takes place on April 23. It sees volunteers give hundreds of thousands of books away in their communities to share their love of reading with people who, for whatever reason, don’t read for pleasure or own books.

Since April 23 we’ve received a wealth of feedback from volunteers, recipients, libraries and bookshops by email and on social media, and have also carried out five surveys to assess in a more formal way the World Book Night experience of those who took part.
