Sharing the Love of Reading, Person to Person
Join the UConn Co-op in the third annual World Book Night, April 23, 2014. It’s fun. It’s easy. And it promotes books and reading to those who might not have the access to books the way we on a college campus do.
Here’s how it works. You go online to World Book Night and sign up to be a Book Giver. Choose from this year’s list the book you want to give away. And, when asked, choose the UConn Co-op as your pick-up place. Prior to World Book Night, your box of free specially printed World Book Night books will arrive at the bookstore. We will host a special Giver night when you can pick up your box of books plus other goodies.
Then, you go out and give your books away. Good places are shelters, prisons, near unemployment offices, in bars –use your imagination. We want to reach out to adults and young people who might not otherwise know the joys of reading.
Please join us. Let’s make UConn participation notable.
