Book Giving Day

For the third year in a row, Annapolis Valley Regional Library (AVRL) will be participating in International Book Giving Day. The goal of this initiative is to get books into the hands of as many children as possible. Here at AVRL, we’ve included teens and adults in that goal. During the week of February 9-14, our branch libraries will be hiding wrapped gift books out in the community. Whoever finds the book gets to keep it, or share it with a friend. 

International Book Giving Day is celebrated world-wide on February 14 each year. We use donated, gently used books as our give-away books. Look for pictures of the hidden books on Facebook, Twitter, and our website. And if you find a book, use the #giveabook hashtag to let us know! 

International Book Giving Day’s focus is on encouraging people worldwide to give a book to someone on February 14th. If you’d like to participate gift a book to a friend or family member,  leave a book in a waiting room for children to read, or donate a gently used book to a local library, hospital or shelter or to an organization that distributes used books to children in need internationally.

 In 2014, International Book Giving Day was celebrated by people in Australia, Canada, South Africa, France, India, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, the Philippines, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany, Nigeria, Nicaragua, Brazil, Egypt, Poland, Greece, Portugal, Mexico, Macedonia, Malawi, Hungary, Malaysia, Israel, Denmark, Thailand
