World Book Night: Libraries play important role

Libraries play a special role in World Book Night on April 23, when 25,000 people will give out 20 copies of a book to complete strangers.

As explained by the American Libraries Association, between now and Jan. 5, libraries can apply to be a pick-up site for book givers in their area.

Participating libraries also agree to be advocates for World Book Night and literacy. And the ALA encourages library staffers to apply to be book givers themselves.
