Public Urged To Participate In World Book Day

February 25, 2021 | 0 Comments

Nikita Robinson is inviting the public to support a nursery, preschool or public primary, middle, or high school to help celebrate World Book Day 2021, which is just a week away.

A spokesperson said, “1,291 books will be delivered to 40 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.

“World Book Day is Nikita’s 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. Reading Officer Kim Manderson from the Department of Education has lent her support again by retrieving specific book requests from each of the reading specialists at our public primary schools.

“It’s not too late to participate. There is one pre-school available for sponsorship or 70 books to be purchased. There are 6 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 The Bookmart department at Brown & Co at 279-5443 to purchase books or a gift card for the school of your choice.
