The books are quick reads, covering a range of genres; many of the stories are written by James Patterson himself. These literally only take a few hours to read; ideal for a bus or train trip, and for encouraging reading among less confident readers.

WORLD BOOK DAY 2017 – THURSDAY 2 MARCH!
World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
This is the 20th year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 2nd March 2017 children of all ages will come together to appreciate reading. Very loudly and very happily. The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own.
Thanks to the generosity of National Book Tokens Ltd, publishers and booksellers, we have received £1 book vouchers that we can offer to children and young people who can then take their voucher to a local bookseller and can use it to pick one of TEN (exclusive, new and completely free) books. Or, if they’d rather, they can use it to get £1 off any book or audio book costing over £2.99 at a participating bookshop or book club (terms and conditions apply).

A reminder that both our Nuneaton and Hinckley Campus Libraries are open during Half term!
