World Book Night Book Givers came to the Athenaeum on Wednesday evening, April 18, to pick up their books. The Athenaeum is a Book Pick-Up Location, partnering with World Book Night to bring 200 free books into the Pittsfield-area community.
World Book Night, an international initiative brought to the United States for the first time this year, is an ambitious campaign to give away a half million free, specially printed books across America. Volunteer book lovers help promote reading by going out on April 23 and personally giving free copies of a book they enjoy.
Our thanks to the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum for hosting the reception!
