Most people are familiar with World Book Day, held every year on March 5.
It is a day of events designed to celebrate the joy of reading, often by encouraging children to wear fancy dress based on their favourite fictional characters.
This year's theme is 'share a million stories', and instead of one day, the whole of March is World Book Month.
Sidmouth Library is coming on board, with a chance for children to come along and hear storytelling sessions, as well as talking about their favourite stories and authors.
First assistant Chloe Reynolds said: "At the library until Sunday, March 29, we want to share a story every day for 10 minutes.
You may also want to watch:
"Children of all ages are invited to come to the library between 4pm and 5pm on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and between 10am and 11am on Saturdays, to share a story with us, whether that's listening to a story read aloud or telling us about a book they've loved reading."
