I’m thrilled to let you know that GRASS Cliftonville application to receive books for the World Book Night 2021 giveaway has been successful! We’ll be joining hundreds of other organisations, including libraries, prisons, schools, hospitals, homeless shelters and many more in distributing books and inspiring people to enjoy reading in Cliftonville West.
World Book Night is the annual celebration of books and reading that takes place on 23 April.
People from all backgrounds are brought together for one reason – to inspire others to read more. The best part about it is that everyone can get involved! Whether you read a lot or don’t know when you last picked a book up, you can join in the celebration in so many different ways. Why is World Book Night important? World Book Night is run by The Reading Agency, a UK-wide charity that tackles life’s big challenges through the proven power of reading.
In England, 31% of adults don’t read for pleasure, rising to 46% of young people (aged 16 to 24). We know that reading for pleasure is linked to fewer feelings of stress and depression, better sleeping patterns and improved literacy. As well as celebrating reading, we work with publishers to donate books to organisations across the country, including prisons, colleges, hospitals, care homes and homeless shelters, and many more. We believe that everyone can participate in World Book Night, and for many this book will start their reading journey.
You can visit the GRASS little library on Gordon Rd. and pick up a book anytime and start your reading journey.
