World Book Day collects 17,200 Book Donations and Brought more than 7,400 Participants Together

World Book Day was held last Sunday, April 23 in 12 countries globally.

This year 17,200 book donations were collected and brought more than 7,400 participants together to educate and share literature with one another.


“The power of reading and the power that books have to transform lives and shape communities is as strong as ever. Around the world, readers visited our Global Free Library events and took part in reading, sharing and discovering new books. We were so appreciative to receive the support of publishers, customers and our own employees to give back to local communities and institutions that are vital to the promotion of literacy and literature.” – Robin Mendelson, Director of Books & Media, Amazon
