World Book Night Recap

So we had a successful World Book Night here at the BPL.  I was unable to go hand the books myself due to family obligations, but our fearless leader, Kathy and Jose from Circulation, along with 2 patrons hit the Depot District to hand out books.

One of those patrons, Alena, has her own blog and posted this great recap of how the night went, along with pictures.

It was a great night of handing out free books to people.

Thanks to all those out there who participated.

Leave a comment and let me know how your World Book Night went.

Surprisingly well! I only had one person react like I was some sort of creepy con man. Everyone else reacted very positively. It was terrifying, but I hope to convince others to join me next year.

Loved it! We are in a tiny, rural area and the school librarian announced that we were giving away "The Hunger Games." After school, I had a stampede! I had one parent call and ask if I was really giving away The Hunger Games. I told her that I was and all she asked was, "Why?" My response was, "Because."
