Following the path of one assistant into full librarianship
February 14th, know to most as Valentines Day, is also International Book Giving Day.
Get involved by going through your own collection of books. Are there any that you don’t read anymore? Instead of throwing them away, or sending them down the charity shop, give them away to people who might not read as much as you.
Slip a bookmark into a book and leave it on a train, at a bus stop, your local library, or another public space. If you have a local community, like a school group, or a children’s hospital, or adult evening class, feel free to get more than just yourself to bring some books along to give or swap around.
Even if you just give a book to a friend, spread the love of reading around this weekend.
