Coventry libraries will be celebrating children’s books and reading for World Book Day on Thursday (3 March).
Libraries will be running school visits, showcasing books with special displays and offering fun children’s activities after school.
World Book Day is a worldwide celebration of children’s books and reading marked in over one hundred countries all over the world.
Coventry libraries want to inspire children to develop a real love of books, and encourage them to develop their reading for pleasure.
Cllr David Kershaw, Cabinet Member for Education, said: “There is nothing like enjoying a new book by your favourite author, and not only is it a great pleasure but it is also a valuable learning experience, particularly for children.
“Libraries are a fantastic place for children to explore, enjoy and develop their reading and I hope that everyone will join in and celebrate World Book Day on 3 March.”
