International Book Giving Day

2012-11-20

Valentine’s Day, a holiday to celebrate those we love, is for me also (and apparently thousands of others) a day to celebrate what we love. So, in that spirit, I participated in International Book Giving Day by leaving two books in the children’s play area at Northboro Chiropractic Center.

According to their website, “International Book Giving Day is a volunteer initiative aimed at increasing children’s access to and enthusiasm for books. We are inviting people to celebrate International Book Giving Day on February 14th by 1. giving a book to a friend or family member, 2. leaving a book in a waiting room for children to read, or 3. donating a gently used book to a local library, hospital or shelter or to an organization that distributes used books to children in need internationally.”

There’s still time to celebrate Valentine’s Day in this worthy way. Remember, “Reading is possibly the only true magic.”
