Pierce County Library System invites members of the community to give out free books during World Book Night 2014. To be considered, apply by Jan. 5, 2014.
On World Book Night (April 23, 2014), 25,000 book givers each give away 20 copies of a book they have read and loved. The volunteers share the joy of reading. They give the unexpected gift of a book to complete strangers.
Book givers choose from a list of 35 titles selected by a panel of librarians and booksellers. The books are specially-printed, not-for-resale World Book Night U.S. editions.
Book givers pick up the free books at participating libraries and bookstores. Six Pierce County Libraries—Key Center, Lakewood, Parkland/Spanaway, South Hill, Summit and University Place—have registered as distribution points.
Help share the love of books. Apply to be a World Book Night book giver at www.us.worldbooknight.org.
