Happy World Book Day!

23. April 2023

World Book Day, celebrated annually on 23rd April, is a day dedicated to promoting reading, publishing, and copyright. It is a celebration of the power of books to educate, entertain, and inspire people around the world. The world of social media has become more important to young people than the written word. But we hope that the love of books and reading will be fashionable again.


Reading promotion

World Book Day was first observed on 23rd April 1995, by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to promote reading and literacy among people of all ages. This date was chosen to honour the anniversary of the birth and death of William Shakespeare, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest writers in the English language.

The purpose of this day is to encourage people to read more and to appreciate the value of books. Reading is an essential skill that helps people to learn, improve their cognitive abilities, and enhance their creativity. Moreover, reading can provide an escape from everyday life and a source of entertainment and pleasure.

Worldwide events

Various events are organized around the world to promote reading and publishing on 23rd April, which include book fairs, book launches, literary competitions, and reading programs. Schools and libraries often host events where children can meet with authors, participate in storytelling sessions, and engage in book-related activities. The aim is to create a love of reading and to inspire people to become lifelong book lovers and readers.

This book day is also an occasion to raise awareness about copyright and the importance of protecting the rights of authors and publishers. Copyright ensures that creators are recognized and rewarded for their work, and that their ideas and expressions are protected from being used without their permission.

Let us all take some time to read a book, appreciate the value of books, and support the rights of authors and publishers.
