LANSING | World Book Night is a celebration of reading and books which will see tens of thousands of people share books with others in their communities across America, the U.K. and Ireland to spread the joy and love of reading on April 23.

This date was chosen in honor of the anniversary of Cervantes' death. It is also the birth date as well as the day Shakespeare died. This night is dedicated to the hope that people who don’t read much or not at all will become inspired by one book and to go on to read more. There will be volunteer “Givers” strategically placed throughout the village of Lansing specifically to hand out copies of books to noreaders to help them get started on their journey into the world of books.

Lansing Public Library has been selected to be one of the volunteer book pickup points across America. World Book Night “Givers” can pick up their books from 6 to 7 p.m. April 17 in the conference room at the Lansing Public Library, 2750 Indiana Ave.
