World Book Night
Free books coming your way!
BWML is hosting World Book Night in Steamboat Springs. All day on April 23, we're going to be out in the community handing out copies of really great books that we love. Look for out team of book givers meandering around downtown, in the locker room at Old Town Hot Springs, at happy hour...just about anywhere around town as we hand out a couple hundred highly-recommended reads!
About World Book Night
World Book Night is an annual celebration dedicated to spreading the love of reading, person to person. Each year on April 23, tens of thousands of people go out into their communities and give half a million free World Book Night paperbacks to light and non-readers. In 2012, World Book Night was celebrated in the U.S., the UK, Ireland, and Germany.
World Book Night is about giving books and encouraging reading in those who don’t regularly do so. But it is also about more than that: It’s about people, communities and connections, about reaching out to others and touching lives in the simplest of ways—through the sharing of stories. 25,000 passionate volunteers across America give a total of half a million books within their communities to those who don’t regularly read. In 2012, World Book Night was celebrated in the U.S., the UK, Ireland, and Germany and saw over 80,000 people gift more than 2.5 million books.
