Are You Celebrating International Book Giving Day?

11 Feb

This Friday 14th of February is International Book Giving Day. It is a day dedicated to getting new, used and borrowed books in the hands of as many children as possible. Here are three great ideas promoted on the website to help celebrate the day.

Here are three simple ways to celebrate International Book Giving Day!


1. Give a Book to a Friend or Relative.
Celebrate International Book Giving Day by giving a child a new, used or borrowed book.


2. Leave a Book in a Waiting Room or Lobby.
Choose a waiting room where kids are stuck waiting and there are few to no good books available. Purchase a good book, and deposit your book covertly or overtly in your waiting room of choice. The goal here is to spread the love of reading to kids, so choose a fun book, nothing controversial.


3. Donate a Book.
Wrap up a box of children’s books that your kids have outgrown and get them in the hands of children who could really use a book or two. Donate your books to your local second hand store, library, children’s hospital, or shelter.
