World Book Day is a fantastic day in the library and it is a shame that we are not able to celebrate it in school. However, Key Stage 3 and 4 students will still receive their book tokens next week from form tutors.

Mrs Saunders, School Librarian, has very kindly put together a presentation of all books on offer to you (see below), and information on how to redeem your tokens:

The World Book Day £1 books are a gift from booksellers, who fully fund the cost of the £1 book token redemptions. Bookshops are offering new ways to make the £1 books available, and bookshops will welcome families when they open again (the tokens will be honoured beyond 28th March – while stocks last.) Families can redeem their £1 token during lockdown when they collect essential shopping OR hold on to it to use later.

Please check for information about retailers open near you and contact them for information about ways to redeem the token before you visit.

Can I use my World Book Day token online? The World Book Day book tokens cannot be used for online purchases.   

How long is the £1 Book Token redemption period? 

To ensure that children have more time to use their token, participating bookshops will honour tokens beyond the 28th March, whilst stocks last. Each retailer will decide whether they are able to offer £1 off other children’s titles.

Enjoy, and #getreading!
