World Book Night is a celebration of reading and books, and sees thousands of people share books within their communities for people to benefit and enjoy. People from across the UK have registered to receive free books so they can distribute within their local community.
The night is a great incentive to encourage library users new and old to go along to their local library and find out about the great services and events on offer.
Operational Manager of Cardiff Libraries, Elspeth Morris, said: “Reading a book can be a life-changing experience! World Book Night is a great opportunity to celebrate and share the benefits reading can bring to people who may not be avid readers.
“Libraries are fundamental to reading so naturally we want to see everybody reading, not just on World Book Night, but every night!”
