Free Reading Day at the BA
The General Collections and Services Department at the BA organizes the “Free Reading Day at the BA” event on Tuesday, 16 October 2018. The event is held annually on the anniversary of the BA inauguration.
This annual event aims at encouraging reading for recreational purposes, in order to help disseminate the culture of reading and encourage the BA public and passers-by to read. Many different events that are open for public take place on this day, from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.
The celebration, this year, includes various seminars, in addition to the carnival where participants may use chalk to draw on the BA plaza ground. The public will be able to draw and express their ideas as well as their love for reading and their favorite books.
The event also includes the exchange of used books, where participants exchange free books with each other. Moreover, the BA will receive book donations from readers to help support its collection.
The “Free Reading Day at the BA” concludes with an hour of free reading at 5:00 pm on the BA Plaza.
