World Book Day

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.

On World Book Day this year (7th March) we ran a competition in all 11 libraries of the Borough.  As part of the competition entry, there was space to draw a picture of your favourite book character and they were so good we thought we'd share them with you.

Admire the artistry, be inspired to read the books from which the characters are taken, and take part yourself next time!
