„World Book Day, also known as World Book and Copyright Day, or International Day of the Book, is an annual event organized by the UNESCO to promote reading, publishing and copyright. The first World Book Day was celebrated on 23 April in 1995, and continues to be recognized on that day.”(Wikipedia)

1995-ben az UNESCO A KÖNYV NAPJÁvá nyilvánította április 23-át. Ezen a napon halt meg William Shakespeare és Miguel de Cervantes. Ez a nap A szerzői jogok napja is. A nap célja, hogy felfedezzük az olvasás szépségét, és ösztönözzük egymást a könyvek forgatására.
A könyv világnapja kapcsán, a „Let’s read in English!” program keretén belül, iskolánk diákjai angol nyelvű idézeteket gyűjtöttek az olvasásról, könyvekről, ezzel nyomatékosítva az olvasás, a könyvek jelentőségét a mindennapi életünkben. Ezzel együtt szeretnénk felhívni a figyelmet az idegen nyelven való olvasás szépségére és hasznosságára is.
