World Book Night takes place on 23rd April, an annual celebration of reading and books, bringing together a powerful collaboration of national partners – publishers, printers, distributors, libraries, booksellers, private donors, trusts and foundations.
This year, Kidderminster College has been chosen as a World Book Night Institutional volunteer, joining thousands of other across the country to share a love of reading and inspire people to begin their reading journeys.
Lisa Lawson, Learning Resources Manager at Kidderminster College completed the application form for us to become a volunteer. Lisa included in the application how World Book Night provides us with the opportunities and resources to reach out to our learners to help them develop a love of reading through pleasure. Last year we targeted learners studying Construction and Motor vehicle during their functional skills English lessons and this year we would like to target the same group of learners to see if there has been a longer-term impact in providing the reading material.
In the UK 35% of people don’t regularly read, World Book Night sees a huge range of passionate volunteers give hundreds of thousands of books away in their communities, to share their love of reading with people who, for whatever reason, don’t read for pleasure.
