Tuesday (April 23) marks World Book Night - and to celebrate, Long Sutton library will be gifting books to the town's Men's Shed.

An annual event, started by the Reading Agency charity, World Book Night aims to inspire people to read by giving away special editions of new books.

Lincolnshire Libraries were selected as one of their book givers, receiving 160 books of 'Juliet Naked' by the award-winning author Nick Hornby. A film, based on the book, was also released last year.

And the team at Long Sutton Library chose the Men's Shed to receive their copies.

"Sheds are about meeting like-minded people and having someone to share your worries with," said a spokesperson.

"They are about having fun, sharing skills and knowledge with like-minded people and gaining a renewed sense of purpose and belonging. The men are going to enjoy sharing the book and discussing it after reading."

On Tuesday, it is also St George's Day and Shakespeare’s death and birth date.
