Library celebrating Children’s Book Week

| May 1, 2016

COSHOCTON – May 2-8, is the 97th anniversary of Children’s Book Week, the annual celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading. The Coshocton Public Library will be celebrating Children’s Book Week with a daily book give-away and a specially-scheduled craft session.

Beginning on Monday, May 2, each child visiting the children’s room at the library may draw the cover of their favorite book and receive an entry into a drawing for a free book. One name will be drawn each day throughout Children’s Book Week.

To kick off the week-long celebration, on Monday, May 2, from 3:30 to 5 p.m., children of all ages are invited to drop-in, enter the drawing, and then have fun doing a make-it, take-it craft. No registration is required for the free craft.

Established in 1919, Children’s Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Every year, commemorative events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores, homes — wherever young readers and books connect.

Children’s Book Week is administered by Every Child A Reader, a literacy organization dedicated to instilling a lifelong love of reading in children. The Children’s Book Council, the national non-profit trade association for children’s book publishers, is an anchor sponsor.
