Sad news. World Book Night is suspending operations in the U.S. due to a lack of funding.
The 2014 WBN U.S. included participation from more than 1000 libraries who registered on the ALA web site.
This is yet another example of a worthwhile project not being (at least to this point) sustainable for the long term. Hopefully, funding will be found soon and WBN U.S. will be able to get going again.
Below, is the full text of the WBN U.S. suspension announcement along with some past infoDOCKET posts about the event.
