Used Book Giveaway to Take Place at City Hall

The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will hold a used book giveaway event at the center lobby of City Hall from 10 AM through 4 PM on August 8.

According to DEP, the organizers will be giving away a huge collection compiled by Yanhui Book Warehouse. The institution, an affiliate of DEP, has become a recognized platform for circulating used books. Nearly 10,000 Chinese and English publications will be given away during the event, thanks to a generous donation made by the library of the Industrial Technology Research Institute.

The books fall into categories spanning computer science, philosophy, psychology, social science, arts, and recreation. Each visitor can pick up one book to bring home. Individuals who are professionals in relevant areas are invited to visit the showcase and find what interests them—for free! In addition, there will also be a section consisting of exam reference materials and books for general readers. Students are eligible to pick nine reference books (mostly for junior or senior high school exams) with their Student ID. Those from low or middle income families can take 30 reference books with proof documents. Members of the general public can exchange 15 used batteries for two books.To coincide with Father’s Day, the event will also feature live band performances, children’s play area, and quiz games. Residents are welcome to visit the showcase, adding an ‘intellectual’ element to Father’s Day.
