Are you taking part in World Book Night giveaway? Applications have now closed for this amazing event, but school librarians all over the country have applied, and have thought of some wonderful and innovative ways to give away the 48 copies of the titles they have chosen. These are some of them:
Caroline from Blackheath Bluecoat school is holding a Reading for Pleasure evening, to which she is inviting parents and governors, with the chance to win one of the free books as a prize. It is also a great chance for her to promote reading.
Annalise will be giving out copies of ‘A curious incident ..’ at a council run dance festival, standing outside in the foyer
Barbara will be standing in the forecourt of her local library to give out her books, and Shaun will be giving his out at a scout night hike and a beer festival!
Liz is asking her 6th formers to distribute them in the local supermarket and leisure centre, whilst Helen is giving out the ‘Life of Pi’ at Kingston Hospital that night
Marion in Sheffield is given the to Year 10’s from two schools in Sheffield and Barnsley who are to to Malelaea, Losotho, to give to the pupils at the schools there – a very precious gift of books for Africa
We are hoping to have photos of some of these amazing giveaways once the event has happened. You could also buy a T Shirt designed by CILIP Vice Chairman Phil Bradley with the theme of Saving Libraries, to wear on the night – all proceeds to charity, or hand out a badge with your books.
