Mammoth Library to celebrate World Book Night

Join Mammoth Public Library and people all over the world for World Book Night.

World Book Night is held in April each year. Each Giver selects a title from a collection of thirty possibilities. Twenty specially printed copies of that title are sent in the Giver’s name to a distribution point, in this case Mammoth Public Library, to be picked up in time for the big event.

Then on World Book Night (or thereabouts), the Giver gives out copies of the book to people who otherwise might not read or have access to books. Best of all, it’s all free.

Although the actual giving event isn’t until April 23, registration to be a Giver ends on January 23. That allows time for the special editions to be printed and sent to the distribution points.

To participate, simply register at www.us.worldbooknight.org. You’ll be asked to select your top 3 title choices and tell why you’d like to be involved and where you’ll be distributing books. You must be 16 years of age or older to participate, and books cannot be sold or distributed to friends or family. You’ll also be asked to select a place to pick up your books. For this you can choose Mammoth Public Library.

The books will be sent to us the week of Apr.15. We’ll have a small celebration for the Givers and hand out the boxes of books. Then off you’ll go to spread the joy of good books!

There are titles for both children and adults. The House On Mango Street is available in both Spanish and English editions. There’s also one poetry title available. So, there’s something for everybody. Consider passing out books at your church or at a hospital or clinic. Does your civic organization serve a population that might appreciate the gesture?

Remember to register online by Jan. 23. Happy book giving!
