World Book Day 1st March 2018

World Book Day is the perfect opportunity for children, parents, teachers and librarians to celebrate books and reading for pleasure.

This March is the twentieth anniversary of World Book Day in the United Kingdom and this year’s theme is “Share a Story”. Everyone is invited to join in and read together for ten minutes on World Book Day… and every day.

Spending just 10 minutes a day sharing stories with children is one of the most important factors in raising a reader for life…. and what’s more it’s fun too! You can read together anytime, from when you wake up until you go to bed. In the playground, on the bus, in the library or in bed – you can read anywhere! So why not join in the fun and “Take 10” this World Book Day.

You can find lots of great ideas and free resources on the World Book Day website at

Plus, what better way to celebrate World Book Day than a visit to your local library. If you would like to arrange a class visit on or around WBD then please contact Gerry Williams on 0151 443 5001 or
