World Book Night

World Book Night

World Book Night began in 2011 as a unique collaboration between publishers, booksellers, librarians, writers and individual members of the public – all of whom are committed to sharing their love of books and reading with the wider world, improving literacy levels and changing lives through the giving away of specially printed books. In the UK, over half of adults of working age have literacy levels below the level of a good GCSE, whilst 16% are at or below that of an 11 year old. Research has proved that sparking a desire to read can have profound effects on literacy, not to mention employability, social interaction, happiness and well-being.
