National Non-Fiction November

national nonfiction dayNational Non-Fiction November is an “annual celebration of all things factual.” It has evolved from a single day celebration to an entire month. It is organized by The Federation of Children’s Book Groups, a group “whose aim is to promote enjoyment and interest in children’s books and reading and to encourage the availability of books for children of all ages, from first picture books to young adult.”

Though you are free to celebrate all nonfiction, there is also a theme, should you desire a bit more focus. The 2014 theme is The First World War. Whether you use the theme or not, this would be a perfect opportunity to partner with local organizations such as museums or historical societies for partnered programming opportunities. Each day in November, the site will offer “30 Days of Adventure in the Real World.”

Of course you don’t have to limit yourself to children’s programming! How do you celebrate non-fiction in your library? Share your stories in the comments!
