Books-A-Million Is Helping Give Away Half A Million Free Books

“On April 23, 2014, 25,000 volunteers from Kodiak to Key West will give away half a million free books in more than 6,000 towns and cities across America. World Book Night U.S. (WBN) is an ambitious campaign to give thousands of free, specially-printed paperbacks to light or non-readers. Volunteer book lovers from 258 Books-A-Million stores across the country will help promote reading by venturing out into their communities and giving away free copies of a book they love, often to those without means or access to a printed book. With the organizational support of Books-A-Million, along with other community partners and libraries, volunteers will be sharing books with non-readers in locations such as hospitals, mass transit, nursing homes, food pantries, underfunded schools and more.” (via WSJ.com)
