World Book Day is not a Government initiative, but a partnership of publishers, booksellers and others.

However the promotion of literacy and the love of reading remain central to the purpose of the modern public library, so we fully support the Day's efforts and focus for children, adults and family learners about the benefits that reading can bring.
