Every Book Its Reader (#EveryBookItsReader) is a campaign to increase quality content about books, literary works, and oral stories in Wikipedia, Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikibooks, and Wikisource. Read more about it in this Diff article.[edit]

From April 1 to April 30 2023 Every Book Its Reader encourages participants to contribute content under the hashtag #EveryBookItsReader. The campaign name is the third law in Ranganathan’s five laws of library science.

Local and regional events can be organized by anyone. If you are organizing an event, please add it to the campaign tracking dashboard. Tag any edits you make during the month of April with the hashtag, #EveryBookItsReader. Visit the Participate page to learn more.

Who is organizing this campaign?[edit]
