World Book Night 2012!

Did you know that in eleven days people across the nation will be holding a celebration?

If not, then you probably haven't heard of "World Book Night". A celebration of reading which will see tens of thousands of people sharing books with others in their communities, the focus of World Book Night is to spread the joy and love of reading across the nation. And this year's celebration will be held on April 23rd! We here at the Salem Township Public Library are proud to announce our participation in such a worthy cause by serving as a pick-up location for those in our area who have signed up to be official "book givers".

-"Where is World Book Night being held?"
In 5,000 cities across the U.S.

-"How many books are being given away?"
Over half a million books will be handed out.

-"Where did World Book Night begin?"
This is the first year it is being held in the U.S. It began in the UK and Ireland last year.

For more information, please stop in the library today and see our display at the Circulation Desk or visit

In honor of World Book Night, we will be giving away a copy of Little Bee by Chris Cleave, one of the 25+ titles selected for distribution on World Book Night. For a chance to win, fill out an entry slip at the library today!
