Public Libraries Singapore has announced its What I’d Like the World to Read! For The September Project 2009. Patrons are invited to create a short video, audio or Power Point presentation on any book they choose and why they think it is important for the world to read it. Here is a sample of one of their submissions, What I’d Like the World to Read- The Giver, by Lois Lowry.
Public Libraries Singapore- Past September Projects
For the Public Libraries Singapore 2008 September Project, teens from CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls’ School created a giant interactive game board on Our Nation’s heritage, culture and history on landmarks at the Jurong Regional Library. Patrons were then free to play the game and learn more about their community.
In a past year, Ivan Chew of the Public Libraries Singapore also hosted a global event with Beverly Holmes Hughes, the Director of the Sugar Grove Public Library (IL). They coordinated an event in which teens from Singapore communicated with teens from Illinois via Instant Messenger, discussing how their lives were different and similar. This awesome event remains a TSP favorite!
