Give out free books for World Book Night

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) – Give the gift of literacy this spring.

Crystal Books and Gifts owner Cheryl Lucas is searching for volunteers to help hand out books on April 23, World Book Night. Book lovers need to register by Jan. 25 to be considered.

The international program seeks to put free books in the hands of light or non-readers to encourage a love of the printed word. Each year, the organization selects 20 books, and volunteers receive 20 free copies of one title to give out.

Last year, World Book Night distributed half a million books to 5,800 towns.
