In 2017, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina announced February 5 as the National Library Day of Bangladesh. Later the official celebration for the first time was observed the following year, 2018, on the same date. One of the reasons for celebrating February 5 as National Library Day is the historical context, as the foundation stone of the first Central Public Library was laid on February 5, 1954, in Dhaka.
The slogan for 2023 is framed based on Smart Bangladesh’s goal, Smart Library, Smart Bangladesh.
