Press Release: Celebrate World Book Day

Nikita Robinson of The Ladies Room on Hott 1075 is inviting the public to read at a nursery, preschool or to a primary 1 class to help celebrate World Book Day 2018.

1,467 books will be delivered to preschools and nursery schools throughout the island in celebration of World Book Day. In addition, a few primary, middle and high school libraries, will be receiving books as well. World Book Day is Nikita's favourite day of the year where the love of literacy is spread from one end of the island to the other by community volunteers.

It's not too late to participate:

There is just 1 preschool available for sponsorship or 60 books to be purchased. There are 12 primary school libraries without book donations. To donate, just go to or call Brown & Co at 279-5443 to purchase your favourite book or books to deposit in book bin for the school of your choice.
