In 1995, April 23rd was officially established as "World Book and Copyright Day". The purpose of the establishment is to promote more people to read and write. We hope that people scattered all over the world, whether you are old or young, poor or rich, sick or healthy, can enjoy reading and respect and appreciate the great contributions to human civilization.

The inspiration for UNESCO to choose April 23 as World Book Day comes from a beautiful legend. April 23rd is the anniversary of the death of the Spanish writer Cervantes, and it is also the popular festival "St. George's Day" in Catalonia.
In fact, the same day is also the anniversary of the birth and death of Shakespeare, and the birthdays of many writers such as the American writer Nabokov, the French writer Maurice De Rouen, and the Icelandic Nobel Prize winner Laxness. So it seems "justifiable" that this day has become a global book day.
In 1995, UNESCO announced April 23 as "World Book Day", dedicated to promoting reading, publishing, and the protection of intellectual property rights to the world.
The"Books must be accessible to everyone, everywhere." Ms. Milagros Del Koror, Director of UNESCO's Creativity, Cultural Industries and Copyright Sector and President of UNESCO Press a word for emphasis.
Since the announcement of "World Book Day", it has received enthusiastic responses from all walks of life around the world, and it has developed into a special emphasis on activities for young people, with the purpose of cultivating children's reading habits, humanistic spirit, and guiding them to respect knowledge.
Therefore, on April 23 every year, authors, publishers, teachers, librarians, educators in private and public schools, students, humanitarians, mass media, and book lovers around the world celebrated Book Day. The publicity campaign of the festival turned into a lively festival of joy.
According to a 2004 survey conducted by a reading website, only 6% of people knew about "World Book Day", 27% of people had heard of it but did not know the details, and 67% of people had never heard of this day.
