World Book Day is back for another year of fun! What favourite book character are you dressing up as this year?

The day aims to encourage children in the UK and Ireland to explore the joy of reading by offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.

World Book Day, in partnership with schools and libraries all over the country distribute over 15 million £1 World Book Day tokens to children and young people. Tokens can be used for one of the FREE World Book Day books OR they can be used to get £1 off any full price book instead. Here are the special World Book Day titles available this year for children and young people to choose from.

The fun doesn’t stop there as thousands of children up and down the country are encouraged to use their imagination and bring their favourite book characters to life by dressing up. And if you visit us on our Facebook page or on Instagram, you might see a few of our library team dressed up too!
