“On World Book and Copyright Day, we celebrate Alberta’s book publishing industry, which is essential to creating and sharing Alberta’s culture at home and abroad.

“This year has been challenging for all of us, including our cultural industries. We want to thank the Book Publishers Association of Alberta and Alberta’s public libraries for their partnership in sharing a treasure trove of Alberta literature online for everyone to appreciate and enjoy.

"Book publishers are an important part of our economy. On World Book Day, we encourage everyone to support our publishing industry and read a made-in-Alberta book.”

Leela Sharon Aheer, Minister of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women

“Our government continues to support libraries across the province as important hubs for community and learning. Check out the Read Alberta eBooks collection available online through your local library.”

“Read about the wild west and hockey, our national pastime. Read thrilling tales and stimulating scientific discoveries. Read about almost every topic under the sun. On World Book Day and beyond, read an Alberta book.”

Kaycee Madu, Minister of Municipal Affairs
