Hillingdon Libraries to host World Book Day 2021 sessions for children

Girl Reading Book

Since it started in 1995, World Book Day has had the goal to promote reading for pleasure and change lives through a love of books and shared reading.

The annual event, originally started by UNESCO, is now marked in over 100 countries around the globe.

It’s founder, Baroness Gail Rebuck, said: “We wanted to do something to reposition reading and our message is the same today as it was then – that reading is fun, relevant, accessible, exciting, and has the power to transform lives.”

On Thursday 4th March, Hillingdon Libraries is hosting three free online events during the day including:

10:30am – World Book Day themed interactive stories and rhymes for under-5s.

2:30pm – Listen to a story then join in with our fun World Book Day games and a quiz for 4 to 9-year-olds.

6:30pm – Bedtime Stories for 4 to 7-year-olds.
