Millwall Celebrates the 25th Anniversary of World Book Day

Today we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of World Book Day


World book day was created to celebrate books, authors, and for young people to enjoy the pleasure of reading. It was established on the 2nd of March  in 1995, with the first World book day in the UK & Ireland taking place in 1997.


It has now become a day where children are encouraged to dress as their favourite book characters, they meet some amazing authors, and enjoy the the joys of reading. 


This year's theme is “You are a reader.” The Millwall Community Trust team celebrated this by taking time out of their day to read from their favourite book.
