The World Book and Copyright Day (WBCD) was declared by the UNESCO General Assembly in 1995. It is the day set aside for the whole world to commemorate books and those who produce them (all book stakeholders), and to pay tribute and recognize the important contribution that they make to the social and cultural progress of humanity, the recording of our history, cultural heritage and the maintenance of a reading culture.
