Through book displays taking a wide array of themes, it is hoped to help readers to find their own reads and help books to find their readers.

Visit to Hong Kong Central Library

If we cannot bring all resources to our students, we teach our students to search for the information they needed. S.4 students were hence brought to Hong Kong Central Library to attend a workshop introducing the resources available online provided by Hong Kong Public Libraries. Students were amazed by the wide array of information instantly available. In September, these students will be teaching their peers what they have learnt in Liberal Studies class.

It’s up to the reader/viewer to decide.
