Hangzhou International School Dragons donate one more library! -Save the date for the 16th Annual Dragon Run, June 24-
The 15th annual HIS Dragon Run fundraising event, thanks to the support of the HIS parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends at the last June 2022 event, was able to continue supporting the Library Project (library-project.org) by donating one more library in a local school in China.
This time, the HIS Dragon Run brought a new library to Niuzhai Central Primary School in Niuzhai Village, located in Daijia Township, Wu Gong County, Xian Yang City, Shaanxi Province.
The new library received more than 1000 Chinese language books, wall bookshelves, library tables, library sofas, chairs, stools, globes, STEAM activity materials, bookends, day activity materials, training materials, and a comprehensive librarian training course.
The books in the Chinese language included history, science, short stories, fairy tales, dictionaries in Pinyin, reference books, comic books, and sets of encyclopedias. Books are of the highest quality, published in China, and full color.
The donation ceremony was last May and aimed to raise the reading interest among students and share the wonderful world of reading. Students listened to many stories with the help of volunteers who read different books during the donation day. Throughout the stories, they got themselves inside fantastic worlds, countries, and cultures. The students were excited and could not wait to pick their favorite book to start their reading journey.
The Dragon Run continues supporting the Library Project. This well-established organization brings literacy and benefits children in local communities by setting up libraries and reading rooms with the money fundraised. The Library Project team works tirelessly to improve education by “one book at a time”, and Hangzhou International School is proud to be part of it.
The Dragon Run organizers, Mr. Chaddwick Plotz and Ms. Andrea Stubbs thank the generous sponsors (poster below), volunteers, runners, and HIS community. You can see the library donation video by scanning the QR code above.
It is great to be a HIS Dragon!
