Knighton Library wants as many people as possible to know about World Book Night on 23rd April 2020
The Reading Agency is offering FREE audio books and resources to use at home.
Have a look, have a read, stay safe!
On 23 April, we'll be making sure that we connect a nation in self-isolation through books. We recently announced our Reading Hour, and from 7-8pm we want you to join with us in spending an hour reading. You can read on your own, aloud with others or take the time to call someone to chat about books. It's all about reading, but it's also all about sharing. We want to know what you're reading, where you are, if you have wine or tea - how are you spending that hour? Join us at 7pm over at @WorldBookNight and @readingagency on Twitter and Facebook using #ReadingHour.
Don't forget to go to your front door or window at 8pm to join the whole country in clapping for our carers. If you're a key worker, thank you from all of us for everything that you're doing.
