World Book Day is a national day celebrated every year on April 23 by librarians across South Africa.

Libraries create programmes to stimulate reading and library usage in support of their growth and development plans and in particular the output of increased literacy, skills and lifelong learning amongst all citizens. 

As the name suggests, the focus of the day is to celebrate books and publishing, raise awareness about the importance of books and reading (especially among underprivileged and disadvantaged communities), to promote South African writers and the appreciation of indigenous literature, and the pleasure of reading. 

  • To raise awareness about the importance of reading
