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.

If your event has been cancelled and your promotions altered because of library closures, we have lots of ideas on how you can engage your users online through social media, websites and e-newsletters. Assets are available on Dropbox and more will be added in the lead-up to World Book Night. For any questions about branding or social media assets, contact

Using the booklist

The World Book Night list offers the perfect selection of books to offer your library users. We’ve worked with publishers to put together a really exciting and engaging list. There’s something on here for everyone, including fiction, non-fiction and books aimed at teens and young adults.

All the books on the list are available as either e-books, audiobooks or both. If your digital service allows, this is the perfect opportunity to run a promotion with this set of books.
