World Book Night offers some lucky Ada residents free reading material - thanks to the library

Representatives of the Ada Library will be walking around Ada downtown Tuesday between noon and 1 p.m. passing out free books to non-readers and people who don't enjoy reading, according to Amanda Bennett, director of the library.

It's all part of the 2013 World Book Night.

"We will be passing out 20 copies of Tina Fey's Bossypants (a funny autobiography of the actress' life) in the hopes of getting more adults interested in reading," said Bennett.  "The books are free because authors have foregone their royalties to make this possible, this is also possible through the generosity and hard work of many volunteers!"
