SOPA and “Bring Me A Book” Rededicate Children’s Library in Yuen Long.
The Society of Publishers in Asia donated a new set of Chinese and English books to children at the Yuen Long Social Service Centre on Friday, April 24, 2015. This re-dedication of the children’s library reflects SOPA’s continuing commitment to improving literacy in Asia.
The joint SOPA – Bring Me A Book event was well attended by the local community and enthusiastically supported by a throng of smiling children. Several on hand had participated in the original dedication ceremony at the Yuen Long Social Service Centre, three years earlier. https://www.sopasia.com/2012/07/sopa-sponsors-bring-me-a-book-foundation/ All in attendance were very appreciative of the rededication of the library that now offers an expanded array of new book titles for the children.
Ray Warhola, SOPA’s Chairman and Christine Wong, SOPA’s Marketing Director attended the event, along with Tom Leander, Awards Committee Chairman who joined in the celebration and offered an inspired reading of “The Watermelon Seed.”
