From a press release.
Who is helping give out half a million free books across America on April 23rd? We are!
The Parent Leadership Office of the Middletown Public Schools and the Middletown Schools Association, in partnership with Wesley School PTA, Russell Library and The Book Bower, are proud to be offering a World Book Night Event on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, at Wesley School, 10 Wesleyan Hills Road, from 5:30-7 pm.
We will be giving away free copies of 2014 World Book Night selections, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs and Tales of the City by Armistead Mopin. The Middletown Schools Association Bookmobile will be on hand to distribute free books to readers of all ages and abilities. In addition, we’ll have pizza, games, crafts, raffles, and the Russell Library’s Children’s Department will be sharing stories and songs.
World book night is an ambitious campaign to give thousands of free, specially printed paperbacks to light readers or non-readers. Volunteer Book Givers, like ourselves, will promote reading by going into our community and handing out free copies of books we love. We are very proud to be World Book Night Givers! We hope you can join us on April 23, to help spread the love of reading person to person.
