World Book Night coming up Tuesday

PLATTSBURGH — On Tuesday, April 23, the staff, board and friends of the Clinton-Essex-Franklin Library System will give out free books for World Book Night.

World Book Night U.S. is an ambitious campaign to give thousands of free, specially printed paperbacks to light or non-readers across America on one day. Volunteer book lovers help promote reading by going out into their communities and sharing free copies of books they love. The mission of World Book Night is to seek out those without the means or access to printed books.

During the day, system staff and friends will give away books at the Champlain Centre mall in Plattsburgh.

The books were chosen by an independent panel of booksellers and librarians through several rounds of voting. The printing of the free books was possible due to generosity of the authors, publishers and book-manufacturing companies.

For more information about World Book Night or to be placed on a contact list for 2014, call the library system at 563-5190 or visit
