Mandarin Program Gathering Books For Taiwan

By on December 18, 2018

The Mandarin Program of Verona’s public schools, along with Maria Mayo, Verona High School’s librarian, will be hosting a book drive for people in Taiwan from January 2 to January 31, 2019. Collection boxes will be available at the VHS lobby and all Verona school libraries.

Books for Taiwan” is an organization that collects used books (children books, pictures books,
cooking books, etc.) from New Jersey and ships them to Taiwan. Many schools, libraries, and
even prisons have benefited from these generous donations. Amy Lin, the founder of Books for Taiwan, reached out to Angie Yang, the Mandarin teacher at Laning and Forest elementary schools for English book donations. Books for Taiwan has helped many children and adults enjoy learning English. Having another language skill, other than their mother tongue, enriches their personal growth and provides them with more job opportunities.

Collection boxes will be located at the VHS lobby, the VHS Learning Commons, and all school libraries in Verona.
