World Book Day 2019

World Book Day on 7 March 2019 is all about celebrating the magic of books and reading. RNIB is proud to support World Book Day's mission to give every child and young person a book of their own, by making 14 new titles available in audio (DAISY CD) and braille. 

Organised by UNESCO, World Book Day is marked in more than 100 countries around the world, with 2019 being the 22nd year of celebrations.

The theme for this year's World Book Day is "Share a story". World Book Day organisers are encouraging parents, children and young people of all ages to spend at least 10 minutes a day sharing a book together and celebrate reading for pleasure, to reignite the love of the bedtime story and promote wellbeing for everyone.

Reading can open up a world of possibilities and enhance the imagination, which is why it is so important for every child (and adult) to be able to enjoy the books of their choice.
