Shenzhen City's Literacy Month is coming up this November. In order to celebrate, look out for Uncle Mo's performance at SWIS on November 14th. SWIS Library will also be hosting the Follett Destiny Workshop on November 15th with many librarians from the region joining us for a day of Professional Development. We would also love to have our SWIS Book Clubs for parent groups up and running this year. Please sign up or email us if you're interested in joining an English, Spanish or Chinese Book Club through our Library page.
We would love try and to invite SWIS families to make a book donation of pre-loved books in good condition or new books for our SWIS library collection. If you're wondering what to do with all the books you've collected on holidays, they can have a good home in our SWIS library. We would especially love to increase our international selection of books, so if you're travelling to different parts of the world that speak languages other than English or Chinese, please remember us having a "Staycation" and help us enjoy new horizons through the book treasures you bring back!
Just a quick reminder that cell phone use, gaming, food/snacks and drink are not permitted in the library.
Enjoy your reading!

You're Invited to Uncle Mo's performance at SWIS on November 14th
Did you know that our city is having 'Shenzhen Literacy Month' in November? It has become one of the most influential events in the city. With the sponsorship from the Education Bureau, on November 14th, Uncle Mo, a famous storyteller, will visit SWIS and give us a wonderful stage play of the picture book Peter and the Wolf. He also wishes to take this opportunity to popularize the knowledge of symphony.
Date: November 14th (Wednesday)
Place: SWIS theatre
Audience: SWIS community
Language: Chinese (We strongly welcome English speakers to join as the play can easily be understood through the performance.)
Uncle Mo is good at role-playing by changing his voice. If you hear a grandpa or an uncle or a little child talking in his program, it is actually Uncle Mo! His WeChat Official Account: Mo's Family, is famous, having an excellent recommendation by children and parents alike. Scan his QR code below and hear his voice before you even meet him. You will find Mo's Family much fun. Are you curious and want to know more about him? Please read his Chinese official introduction below.
Let's look forward to meeting him on November 14th.
