CAVES BOOKS- BOOK FAIR 敦煌書局書展
The library is excited to announce an upcoming BOOK FAIR in partnership with CAVES BOOKS FLAGSHIP STORE IN TAICHUNG! From December 12 to 14, Caves will set up a book fair in the elementary side of the library. On December 15, Caves will move the book fair to the covered play area and join the Christmas Bazaar. Caves will bring large quantities of English books for all ages, Chinese books, test prep books, stationary and school supplies and make them available to our community at 20% off the regular prices. It is also a great way to support the library as Caves will donate 5% of the sales to the library which we can use to buy even more books and materials for our students. Caves recently became a distributor for Scholastic so you know they will have many great books that our students will love! Watch for more details in a future EMS Express and from your child’s teacher.
圖書館很高興地在此宣布將與敦煌書局旗艦店合作，即將在台中舉辦書展！從12月12日到14日，敦煌書局將在圖書館的小學一側設立書展。 12月15日，敦煌書局將把書展搬到遊樂區，加入聖誕集市。敦煌書局將為所有年齡層的人提供大量英文書籍，中文書籍，考試準備書籍，文具和學校用品，並以正常價格20％的價格提供給我們的社區。這也是支持圖書館的好方法，因為Caves會將5％的銷售額捐贈給圖書館，我們可以用它來為學生購買更多書籍和材料。敦煌書局最近成為Scholastic的經銷商，所以你知道他們會有許多我們的學生會喜歡的好書！更多訊息將會公佈在在EMS Express以及您孩子的老師都會公布相關信息。
