World Book Day
Written by Hitmix Local News on 2 March 2023
Today, Thursday 2nd March Staffordshire libraries will be celebrating all things children’s books with World Book Day.
Children up and down the county will be encouraged by their schools to dress up as their favourite book character from Harry Potter to Little Red Riding Hood aimed to spread the joy of reading. Encouraging a love of reading is the main aim behind World Book Day and research has shown that by just spending 10 minutes a day reading and sharing stories with children can make a crucial difference to their future success.
As always World Book Day tokens will be given out which can then be exchanged for a free book at selected book stores, this year authors will include Joe Wicks, Lenny Henry and Adam Kay, to see the full range of authors/ titles and where to collect your book as well as some fun activities to do online click here
Staffordshire Libraries will of course be joining in the celebrations with class visits from local schools, eye catching displays and showing off our fabulous range of children’s books.
So on this world book day grab a great children’s book from your local library and join in the magic and joy of reading and sharing stories.
