I first found out about it from Catherine Friess via Story Snug. She has a huge list of suggested ways you can take part here.
My family just donated picture books to an organization that supports the refugees located in our town last month, but since the kids are getting older, I went through all the books they no longer read (and mine too!). So this is what we're planning for International Book Giving Day:
- Donating used English-language chapter books to a local school.
- Giving a few used German-language books to our hairdresser – so kids have something to look at while they're forced to sit still.
- Donating English and German books to a local dual-language pre-school.
- I'm also going to give away some books for adults at work.
What are you doing for International Book Giving Day? Feel free to share below, on twitter (hashtag #bookgivingday) or other social media sites, or blog about it yourself! The more people participate, the more books can be shared!
