World Book Day Fest

World Book Day Ireland

Céad Míle Fáilte

A Chairde, we are delighted to be celebrating the 16th World Book Day in Ireland on Thursday 6th March 2014. Over the last 16 years World Book Day has become firmly established as Ireland’s biggest annual event promoting the enjoyment of books and reading. The main aim is to encourage children to explore the pleasure of books and reading by providing them with an opportunity to have a book of their own. This may sound like a very simple idea, but unfortunately, many children do not have access to books in their homes.

Don’t forget that you can now also follow us on Facebook and Twitter. We will have lots of great competitions and giveaways as well as news, info and reading resources.

As always, happy reading.

All material, including Euro Book Tokens, is sent in bulk to Ireland and is despatched to schools by the Irish Department of Education. We would like schools in Ireland to help ensure that the list used for dispatch is completely up to date. Please visit the site registration section or contact the main Helpline on 00 44 01634 729810 or wbd@education.co.uk.

The Irish Helpline operates for a limited period around World Book Day—please contact it on: worldbookdayireland@gmail.com

Secondary schools are required to register to participate. For 2014, secondary schools should re-register and re-confirm their requirements and schools not yet registered are welcome to do so also. Please see the secondary school registration section on this site for all details and to check your registration status. There is a €25 administration fee payable after 30 November 2013

Please note that schools in Ireland and all primary schools will be automatically mailed as in previous years; there is no need to register. However, if you have previously requested to not receive any mailings from Education Direct, WBD’s mailing house, you will not receive any WBD material. To rectify this situation, please contact the Helpline at wbd@education.co.uk.
