Other ways to celebrate
- Watch The Biggest Book Show on Earth, a film compered by CBBC stars Dick and Dom and featuring many of this year's World Book Day authors and illustrators. The film explores exactly what it takes to write and illustrate brilliant stories.
- Library joining forms have been included in schools packs and they're also available from the World Book Day website. Look out for children, young people and adults bringing these to libraries.
- Share your ideas for promoting reading on World Book Day in World Book Day's Showcase section.
We are also delighted that World Book Day have put a library joining message in the backs of books, and have highlighted the 'first-time challenge' for working with libraries in the schools packs, which includes suggestions for ways that schools and libraries can work together.
If you're organising an event in your libraries, we'd love to hear about it and to see your photos. Share them with us on Twitter or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don't forget to like World Book Day on Facebook and follow them on Twitter - @WorldBookDayUK. You can use #worldbookday to join in the celebration.
