World Book Day
20 March 2017 is World Book Day
A total of fifteen million book tokens will be given away to children in the UK, on 20 March 2017 as once again World Book Day is celebrated in schools. The children can exchange their book tokens, at participating book stores for any one of ten titles specially produced for the event. Alternatively, they can use the token to get one pound off any book or audio book, priced over two pounds ninety nine pence.
World Book Day Ltd is a small, registered charity. The financing of World Book Day comes mainly from contributing publishers, the generous sponsorship of National Book Tokens Ltd, some literacy partnerships and other supporters, as well as the participating booksellers who fund the entire cost of the Book Token redemption.
Events and competitions will be organised in schools and libraries all around the country, designed to encourage children to read and to enjoy books
