DARIEN — On April 23, World Book Night, volunteers from the Indian Prairie Public Library will be part of a campaign to give away half a million free books throughout the U.S.
Volunteer book lovers will help promote reading by going out into their communities and sharing free copies of books they love. Volunteers from IPPL will be at restaurants, stores and other businesses in Willowbrook, Burr Ridge and Darien, starting at 5:30 p.m.
The books were chosen by an independent panel of booksellers and librarians through several rounds of voting. The printing of the free books was possible due to generosity of the authors, publishers and book manufacturing companies.
