Fresno State’s Henry Madden Library  invites volunteers to serve as “book givers” for  World Book Night, Apr. 23 which promotes reading in the community by giving out free books to those in need. Book givers receive 20 copies of a book selected from a specifically compiled list to give away to light or non-readers in the local community. Givers can select the Madden Library as the location where they would like to pick up their books. A reception for givers will be held, 2-4 p.m. Apr. 20 at the library entrance. The deadline to apply to be a “book giver” is Jan. 25. To find out more and apply, visit INFO: Amanda Dinscore, 559.278.7672 or
