Youth Square 2nd “Book Crossing Festival”

Youth Square hosted the 2nd “Book Crossing Festival” on 11 and 12 August for the youngsters and members of the public to “release” their books and “collect” the books they like. With the support of more than 3,000 visitors, over 7,000 books were “crossing” during this two-day event. The activity was not only promoting environmental friendly, but also enhanced the reading atmosphere and nurtured the youngsters’ reading habit.

 

Book Crossing originated in Europe several decades ago. It means the book owner writes down his insights and feelings and then releases them at public venues for another book lover to read. After the book lover read the book, he can pass around the book in the same way. This is not just being environmentally friendly, but also encourages reading and widens the circulation of books.
