Library grows in earthquake’s wake

Chen said that he hoped the Philanthropic Library would continue to grow to give Taiwanese children the chance to gain an intimate appreciation of books.

He also said that the Philanthropic Library may be able to assist the government when the new 12-year national education program is launched next year.

The Ministry of Education is promoting the reading of extra-curricular books of the students’ own choosing during the morning self-study period, instead of using it for tests, Chen said.

The Philanthropic Library encourages the teacher to select books for the students, which Chen said allowed for in-depth reading and after-reading discussions.
