Vietnam Book and Reading Culture Day aims to develop the reading movement among the community, contributing to building a learning society.

Hanoi will hold an array of activities in response to Vietnam Book and Reading Culture Day 2023 from April 15 to May 1 to foster the reading habit, according to the municipal Department of Information and Communications.

The event is expected to contribute to building a learning society, in addition to paying tribute to the readers, authors, publishers, editors, printers, and libraries that strive to preserve, collect and promote books.

On this occasion, the municipal People’s Committee will host a book fair on Hanoi Book Street, located at December 19th Street in Hoan Kiem District. Building databases, sharing online documents, and establishing book and reading clubs will also be on the event agenda.

Various activities within the framework of Vietnam Book and Reading Culture Day 2023 will also take place under a plan, which has been released by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

With the theme “Book: Awareness - Innovation - Creation” and “Books for me, for you”,  seminars on reading habits will be held together with an online book festival hosted at the website book365.vn.

In 2021, the Vietnamese Government signed Decision No.1862/QD-TTg on the organizing of Vietnam Book and Reading Culture Day annually on a national scale.

Under the decision, the event is aimed at affirming the role and importance of books in improving knowledge, skills, and thinking as well as education.


Moreover, the day aims to honor organizations and individuals who significantly contribute to fostering reading habits among the community.

The Ministry of Information and Communications and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism will be in charge of hosting the event and guiding an economic celebration of the Day throughout the country.

The Vietnam Publishing Association and the Vietnam Library Association will instruct their member organizations to hold activities in response to the Vietnam Book and Reading Culture Day.

Vietnam Television, Vietnam Voice, Vietnam News Agency and central and local news agencies will be responsible for reporting this annual event.
