Who is helping give out half a million free books across America on April 23rd? We Are! 

World Book Night -- April 23, 2014

On April 23, 2014, 25,000 volunteers from Berkeley to Boston and Sitka to Sarasota will give away half a million free books in more than 6,000 towns and cities across the country. The Barrett Branch Library is a proud participant of World Book Night, an ambitious campaign to give thousands of free, specially printed paperbacks to light or nonreaders across America on one day. Volunteer book lovers help promote reading by going out into their communities and sharing free copies of books. The mission of World Book Night is to seek out those without the means or access to printed books.
