Books To Be Donated For ‘World Book Day’

February 28, 2019

Nikita Robinson of The Ladies Room on Hott1075 is inviting the public to read at a nursery, preschool or to a primary school reading class to help celebrate World Book Day 2019, which is just a week away.

“1,344 books will be delivered to 39 pre/nursery schools throughout the Island in celebration of World Book Day. In addition, 18 public primary school reading classes and Public Middle and High school libraries, will be receiving books as well,” Ms Robinson explained.

She noted that World Book Day is her favorite day of the year where the “love of literacy is spread from one end of the island to the other by community sponsors and volunteers.”

This year BEN – Bermuda Education Network has lent their support by retrieving specific book request from each of the public primary schools.

It’s not too late to participate: There are 3 pre-schools available for sponsorship or 130 books to be purchased. There are 16 public primary school reading classes available for sponsorship. The book lists are posted at Brown & Co. Book Donations or gift cards can be purchased for our Public Middle and High School Libraries. To donate, just go to or call Brown & co at 279-5443 to purchase your favorite book or books to deposit in the book bin for the school of your choice.
