“Most people don't realize how important librarians are. I ran across a book recently which suggested that the peace and prosperity of a culture was solely related to how many librarians it contained. Possibly a slight overstatement. But a culture that doesn't value its librarians doesn't value ideas and without ideas, well, where are we?”

World Book Night

I am so excited -- I just got news that I was selected as a book giver for World Book Night! I am not entirely certain what book I will be giving away or where I will be giving it away, but it will most likely be a coffee shop in downtown Wayne, PA. World Book Night is an annual event that is held in the US, Ireland, and the UK on the same date in an effort to spread the love of reading and books within our communities by giving away quality paperback books.  On April 23rd and I will be hanging out at my location with a box of books and giving them out FOR FREE as I join in on this wonderful effort to promote literacy within our community. For more information check out www.worldbooknight.org/.
