TPL to Commemorate World Book Day with Book Truck Tour

To celebrate the upcoming World Book Day and to promote quality books by local authors, Taipei Public Library (TPL) will collaborate with independent bookstores and independent publishers to organize a tour by a “book truck” to promote the concept of a mobile library.

The inauguration ceremony for the book truck will take place at the outdoor plaza in front of TPL at 2 PM on Saturday, July 1.

According to TPL, the activity involves a book truck which has been designed based upon the concept of a library on wheels, carrying a sizable collection of 200 books. Hopefully, this will provide more exposure opportunities for works by local authors to potential readers.

The Book Truck’s tour will take place between July 1 and July 14. During the visits at the designated locations, the public will have a chance to interact with authors from independent publishing companies, as well as enjoying great reading materials.

The Book Truck activity will also collaborate with the upcoming Taipei Film Festival, stopping at Zhongshan Hall every day from 3:30 pm until 9 PM between July 3 and 8.
