Liverpool ONE celebrates World Book Day

Bookworms of all ages can enjoy a special treat today (Thursday 5 March) as Liverpool ONE fills its streets with hundreds of books to celebrate World Book Day.


The retail and leisure destination has teamed up with book sharing organisation The Book Fairies Liverpool to encourage visitors to discover a new story or pick up their favourite tale.

As part of the event, more than 200 books will be left across Liverpool ONE, available freely for visitors to take home and read or share with a friend.

Among those being left out in Liverpool ONE are such favourites as Enid Blyton’s Secret Seven; The Chronicles of Narnia; and The Hours by Michael Cunningham.

Donna Howitt, Marketing Director at Liverpool ONE, said: “World Book Day has become a real highlight in many families’ calendars, as children dress up as their favourite characters and are encouraged to read more both at home and in school.

“It’s also a great opportunity for grown-ups to make more time for reading and to reminisce about their favourite childhood books. Sharing stories is such an enjoyable experience and important for children’s literacy development and we’re delighted to be have joined forces with The Book Fairies this year.”

A mixture of children’s favourites and modern classics can be found across Liverpool ONE, with locations including Costa, Hotel Chocolat, The Club House, Arket, plus various benches and the Sugar House Steps, with supplies being replenished throughout the day.
