As part of World Book Night 2012, the Library is offering a FREE BOOK to the first 48 staff or students to come through our Library doors after 5pm on Monday, April 23.


We have 24 copies of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road and another 24 copies of The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella to give away.

So come up to our Information Desk from 5pm and while stocks last we'll give you the book of your choice!

Cregan Library's participation in World Book Night is organised by The Reading Agency, the reader development agency for libraries’ work with readers.

The World Book Night 2012 titles were selected in part by members of the public who participated in an online ballot leading to the World Book Night top 100 books for the 2012 give-away. The full list can be seen at:

Now in its second year, the event is an industry-wide initiative launched in 2011 and will see one million free books given away by passionate readers to other members of the public across the UK and Ireland. It takes place on April 23, UNESCO’s International Day of the Book and Shakespeare’s birthday.
