World Book Night is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England
World Book Night would not be possible without the donors who have given so generously to support us, from the givers and readers who have given a few pounds to major funders who have given thousands.
World Book Night is supported by the generosity of among others:
The libraries and booksellers across the country who participate as pick-points.
The World Book Night books are distributed by Yodel, the UK's leading parcel delivery company, which delivers over 150 million parcels a year to homes and businesses on behalf of the UK's top retailers. Yodel are delivering all 25,000 packages of books for World Book Night to libraries, bookshops and institutions across the UK & Ireland.
The books are printed on Holmen BOOK which is a Carbon neutral paper supplied and sponsored by Holmen Paper. Holmen BOOK is a recyclable paper based on
wood, a renewable and climate-neutral raw material. The wood comes from an environmentally adapted forestry.
World Book Night’s primary partners are:
