World Book Day takes place on 7 March 2019 and we hope you'll join in the global celebration!

World Book Day is an annual event which celebrates books and reading. That makes it the perfect day to reach out to the thousands of people who don’t have the books they need by fundraising.

In 2017, schools and individuals across the UK raised over £140,000! That’s enough to send 70,000 books.

The next World Book Day takes place on 7 March 2019. We hope you’ll help make this the best World Book Day ever in schools and libraries across Africa.

If you need support or want to share your fundraising plans so we can support you on social media, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Every year, thousands of UK school children use our guides to dress up as their favourite book character and donate £1 to our work.
