Mrs. Anderson Celebrates World Book Night

April 26, 2012

from Holy Cross Librarian, Mrs. Anderson –

On April 23, I celebrated World Book Night!  

All across America, thousands of volunteers generously gave away books to share the joy of reading.  Thanks to the Authors & Publishers and all of the givers for helping start a literary movement.  I was fortunate to be able to participate in this first World Book Night in the US!

I gave away 20 copies of The Book Thief. I left some books on benches at Union Station, gave some to people in the main hall there, handed some to people in the food court of Crown Center, and put some out for the teachers here at Holy Cross.  

It was so much fun, and everyone had a big smile on their face getting a free book!
