“We must ensure that books are accessible for everybody and everywhere.”




Welcome to the website of World Book Day Netherlands

World Book Day is an international day established by UN organisation UNESCO in 1995. Every year on this day in more than a hundred countries attention is paid to the importance of books and of reading.

Foundation Read to Grow organises World Book Day in the Netherlands since 2002. Our goal is to shine the spotlight on the scarcity and the importance of good books and reading material in the developing countries.

Every year tens of Dutch high schools and international schools take part in a drive to collect good English and French language books for projects in developing countries.
