World Book Day – read around the world with us on March 7!

Open a book, turn a page – and be whisked away to another time and place. Books truly are a window to the world. Experience the joy and power of reading with us as we celebrate World Book Day on March 7 at the library:

  • Explore our collection of over 8,000 titles and media items
  • Hear readings of selected stories from around the world throughout the afternoon
  • Take the story further with fun crafts and activities – including an oversized banner everyone can help create and decorate
  • Treat yourself to some goodies at our cake stand… because it’s no fun reading on an empty stomach.

World Book Day runs from 1-4pm, while the library will remain open until 5pm. So you’ll have plenty of time to return, renew and check out books. Hope to see you there!
