International Book Giving Day

Dear Parents,

The International Book Giving Day is held every year on February 14, as a volunteer project, to promote children's enthusiasm for reading and donating books, and encourage them to read more.

On the occasion of the International Book Giving Day, we join the big action of collecting picture books, titled "I read, I give, I am happy - donate your book and warm someone's heart" aimed at collecting as many picture books as possible to cheer up kids' lives in hospitals, clinics, and other places they gather.

We invite you to bring new or gently used picture books (in Croatian or English) your children already read or grew out of, to our school library from February 6th to 17th, 2017.

Croatian picture books will be taken to the Knezija library, which will distribute them where needed most, while picture books in English will remain in our school library for Book Club use, which develops and strengthens the importance of reading from the earliest age.

It is our hope that you will respond to this action and warm children's hearts.


Ina Tomic, librarian
