Libraries in the Highlands are taking their events to celebrate World Book Day and encourage reading across communities on social media today.

High Life Highland Libraries have a full day of activities lined up which members of the public can access online through their Facebook page.

Julie Corcoran, principal libraries manager for High Life Highland, said: “Libraries play a unique role in promoting reading in communities. We have a full day planned around World Book Day with live Bookbug sessions on Facebook at 11am and themed Lego challenges throughout the day concluding with a World Book Day themed family Quiz at 4pm.”

World Book day is a charity funded by publishers and booksellers in the UK and Ireland and enables libraries to use campaigns more effectively to promote reading engagement and library membership across the UK.

Ms Corcoran added: “This year like everything else World Book Day is going to be a bit different, however all we can do to help young people gain an interest in reading for pleasure is vitally important providing skills that will have an impact on a child's future success and we look forward to welcoming them to our libraries once again soon.”
