World Book Night 2020
23 April 2020
Today - 23 April - is all about celebrating books and sharing
the benefits that reading for pleasure has on our lives.
How can you join in? It's simple, read a book! You can read
anything you like in any way you want. We also want you to share

to join you today?
Everyone is invited to the #ReadingHour from 7-8pm tonight. This
