World Book Night Reception

New Milford Public Library is proud to be one of 2,300 bookstores and libraries across America supporting World Book Night 2014. Join us from 6:30 PM - 8 PM to celebrate World Book Night and their givers. This is an annual celebration dedicated to spreading the love of reading, person to person. Each year on April 23, tens of thousands of people go out into their communities and give half a million free World Book Night paperbacks to light and non-readers. NMPL will serve not only as a community base for local givers by receiving the books that they will be giving out but also by providing a location to which recipients can come to obtain their free books. World Book Night is about giving books and encouraging reading in those who don’t regularly do so. But it is also about more than that: It’s about people, communities and connections, about reaching out to others and touching lives in the simplest of ways—through the sharing of stories. For more information, please call 860-355-1191 x201.
