World Book Night

World Book NightOn World Book Night, 25,000 passionate readers across America -- including some DC Public Library Staff -- will hand out books within their communities. The goal is to open up a new world to those who don’t regularly read and people who don’t normally have access to books.

Each volunteer will have 20 free copies of a popular book title to give away on World Book Night, Wednesday, April 23.

World Book Night provides the books to participating givers, including the DC Public Library.

Here's the list of giveaway books for 2014:
