Announcement: International Book Giving Day

14th February is not just a day to revel in flower and rose-giving. It is also International Book Giving Day and is all about getting books into the hands of as many children as possible on 14 February.

International Book Giving Day is a 100% volunteer initiative aimed at increasing children’s access to and enthusiasm for books.

Since its inception in 2012, International Book Giving Day has continued to grow & grow and is celebrated by people in over 44 countries, including – Ukraine, Czech Republic, Croatia, Cyprus, Australia, Canada, South Africa, France, India, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, the Philippines, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany, Nigeria, Nicaragua, Brazil, Egypt, Poland, Greece, Portugal, Mexico, Macedonia, Malawi, Hungary, Malaysia, Israel, Denmark, Sri Lanka, Serbia, Thailand, Indonesia, Jordan, China, Puerto Rico and Bulgaria.

International Book Giving Day is run by Emma Perry (My Book Corner, UK) and brilliantly supported by Catherine Friess – Story Snug (Germany) on Twitter. 

You can get involved in a number of exciting ways, big or small, it doesn't matter. As long as the gift of giving books to children somewhere somehow extends throughout the world, you can be sure you are making a difference.
