     world book night logo

Book lovers across the country are getting ready for World Book Night, Wednesday, April 23 — which is less than week from today!
Next Wednesday night, we will be giving away over 300 copies of books - 11 different titles of trade paperbacks for teens and adults. Inside each one you’ll also find a library card application and a flyer for Love Your Library Day on May 4.
Look for us around town -- at the train station, day care centers, supermarkets, schools and restaurants -- spreading the love of reading and books!
