Donating Books at Bookfest @ Malaysia

Thanks to my blog reader for sharing this with me.

This would be a good way for fellow Malaysians to help inculcate reading habits among fellow Malaysians!

And Bookfest @ Malaysia 2008 is definitely a good place to get some good books. It is amazing to read that the Bookfest has been getting very good response. Day 1 yesterday brought in about 30,000 people, and today, brought in 40,000 people. Does that mean that we have brighter day for improving the value add for Malaysians? Do Malaysians strengthen their reading habit already?

Go to the Bookfest at Kuala Lumpur Convention Center!

Full article below is quoted from The Star

KUALA LUMPUR: A book recycling campaign will also be held in conjunction with Bookfest @ Malaysia 2008.

The campaign will see books donated by members of the public sent to selected orphanages, children hospital wards and primary school libraries.

Those who want to donate can bring them to the Readcycle for Charity counter located at the KL Convention Centre.

The counter will be open from 10am to 10pm for the duration of Bookfest@Malaysia 2008, which runs from today until June 1.

Each book donor who brings a minimum of 10 used books will be presented with a one-year Popular Adult Card, which entitles the bearer to many offers at all Popular bookstores nationwide. Only English books in fairly good condition will be accepted.

Would encourage any of my blog readers to share with me any event that you come across. As long as the event/activity/initiative is education/charity/youth oriented and is not-for-profit, I would be more than happy to post it to share!
