The Big Book Giveaway

27 April 17




We teamed up with Middlesbrough Libraries for a big book giveaway at Middlesbrough Bus Station yesterday


In a bid to inspire people to read more, customers were encouraged to jump on services 27/27A and 29/29A and head down to Middlesbrough Bus Station to bag their book!


Ruth Cull, Library Development Officer, for Middlesbrough Central Library said: “Middlesbrough Libraries are delighted to be working in partnership with Arriva to give out books to Middlesbrough residents who may not read regularly as part of 2017’s World Book Night promotion. Research has shown that 67% of people in the UK wish they read more so hopefully receiving a free copy of Lucy Diamond’s ‘The Beach Café’ will encourage people to take the time to read.”


We hope our customers enjoy their free copy of ‘The Beach Café’ and let it transport them into their own world as they sit back, relax and enjoy some ‘me time’ on their bus journey.


The 27/27A runs up to every 7/8 minutes from Netherfields to Middlesbrough via North Ormesby.


Services 29/29A can take passengers from Marton & Easterside to Middlesbrough via Middlesbrough Theatre and Saltersgill with buses running up to every 15 minutes.
