World Book Day 2022

About World Book Day

World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading. Our mission is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.

Design a new library card for Kirklees Libraries

We’re looking for a new library card design and we’d love your help. We want the children of Kirklees to help us celebrate the wonderful characters from diverse communities who can be found in children’s books.  There’s a selection of books we think would be great for this shown below. Closing date is Thursday, March 10.

If you win your picture will feature on library cards used at libraries across Kirklees! Winning entries will also receive an additional prize.

How to enter

Clicking or selecting one of the images below will open a new tab. You will then be able to print your entry form and a page on which to draw your design.

Return your picture to a Kirklees Library on Thursday 10 March 2022 and if you win your picture will feature on Kirklees library cards!
Winning entries will also receive an additional prize.
