Wrexham Library celebrates World Book Night

World Book Night is an annual celebration of reading and books which takes place across the world on Thursday 23rd April. Libraries across the UK will be taking part

As part of the Carnival of Words, Wrexham Library is hosting an evening of celebrations to promote World Book Night inviting people to come along to receive a book, have the chance to chat to local authors, hear from the Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism, Ken Skates AM and to listen to the winning stories from the young peoples’ creative writing competition. Refreshments will be provided from 6.30pm

Ann Hughes, Library Services Manager, commented: “World Book Night is about giving books and encouraging those who have lost the love of reading – or are yet to gain it – to pick up a book and read. Passionate volunteers give hundreds of thousands of books away in their communities to share their love of reading with people who, for whatever reason, don’t read for pleasure or own books.

“Whether you’ve signed up to be a giver, you’re the lucky recipient of a book, or you come along to our special events, you can be part of something really special and help World Book Night spread a love of reading across Wrexham and indeed across Wales.”
