Ekushey Book Fair is the national book fair of Bangladesh, which is arranged every year during February in Dhaka. This event is arranged to commemorate the historic language movement of 21 February 1952 for the establishment of Bangla as the mother language.

For more than 17 years, the British Council has been taking part in this fair to reach a greater number of spectators with its variety of services. This year, we are at the Ekushey Book Fair with exciting interactive sessions, games, summer reading challenge, discounted memberships and much more. 

For the first time ever, we are keeping a children's corner with fun activities like Active Floor, storytelling session, reading challenges and fun games. Do visit that!

The British Council Library and Cultural Centre is offering 10% discount on any annual library memberships throughout the month of February. By visiting our stall, you will also get to know about our latest addition, Digital Library and enjoy a first-hand experience at our digital corner. If you haven't explored it yet, don't miss out on it! 

Throughout the month, we have designed bite-sized interactive sessions to cater to audiences of all ages and interests.
