It's that time again!

FtonBookbarn is very excited to once again be participating in World Book Day on Thursday the 7th of March. Any chance to encourage reading in young people is a chance we are going to take!

Last year, you'll remember, most of the UK ended up postponing WBD celebrations due to the snow that we ended up battling in early March. Getting to school and work was a bit like climbing Everest, at least I think so, with no idea what it is like to climb Everest. The snow was lovely, and it was nice to have a few extra days off, but we were sad to put off celebrating this wonderful day.

However, we managed to have a lovely delayed celebration a week later.

This year, we're going bigger than ever on our celebrations, and spending the days leading up to it hosting students from a local primary school, creating reading lists and doing lots of fun activities, provided by the World Book Day website.

On the big day itself, we'll be inviting children and young people from the local area to join us in continuing the World Book Day celebrations after school. Our team will be dressing up as their favourite characters, and there will be a Book Lucky Dip (the proceeds of which will go to Beanstalk charity), story time session and many more fun little activities. We will also be bringing out our very best books to display in our Children's area and shop.

Please keep an eye on our social media for posters and more information on what we're up to on the day.

Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions. Call us on 01761 451333 or email bookbarn@bookbarninternational.com FAO of Emma.
