|Dates: 19-23 May 2014
Location: Taipei, Taiwan
The Hefei Delegation to Taiwan (from 19-23 May) was sponsored by the Chen Yet-Sen Family Foundation, with supports from the Interlibrary Cooperation Association and Taiwan Normal University. During this period, arrangements would be made for you to visit 4 Taiwan Elementary Schools, the National Library of Public Information, the Eslite Bookstore and the Hsin-Yi Children Bookstore. Hopefully, this exchange can help the Education Bureau and member schools of the Stone Soup Happy Reading School Alliance to:
- Understand the planning and policies made by Taiwan education authorities for developing primary school libraries, so as to promote their development;
- Visit elementary schools and public libraries in Taiwan to learn from education philosophies on school library development and the integration of library with subjects in Taiwan;
- Introduce hands-on experience gained by the Stone Soup Happy Reading School Alliance in building and developing school libraries to schools and education authorities in Taiwan;
- Facilitate the academic exchange on school library development between Mainland China and Taiwan.
On the last day of the visit, the Exchange Seminar for School Library and Reading Promotion Teachers Visiting Taiwan from Hefei was organized. For more information, please visit:
