World Book Night offers the perfect opportunity for you to celebrate with your existing library users, bring new people into the library and engage with the community.
Further resources will be available on our resources page to provide you with ideas on how you can participate.
How to celebrate
We want to create a nation of readers, so when planning your celebration, think about how you can reach new audiences who don’t yet use the library.
- Membership drive
Take a stall out into the local community or to a partner organisation to sign people up to the library for the first time.
- Host an event
Organise a quiz night, murder mystery, storytelling session, or invite an author into your library.
- Book clubs
Invite your book clubs in to meet each other and share their recommendations, creating a reading community.
- Join in the #ReadingHour
Encourage people to dedicate time to reading from 7–8pm on 23 April and join in the conversation online.
