The Central Library has planned four programs to encourage students to read more books. The first program is called “The Reading Discussion Club with Mentors.” This is a newly made program under the purpose of improving creative thinking and discussion skill through mutual discussions within a group. Mentors, who are composed of professors, will share their knowledge and experience with their students. There are ten professors and each of them takes ten students for one group. Every group must gather up at least once a month, and they had their first meeting during the third week of September. Students were selected by first-come-first-served basis on September 23rd.
The second program is “The Knowledge Lecture of Celebrities.” From 2012, The Central Library has been organizing the program monthly. With its steady popularity, The Central Library will hold the 26th lecture on October 10th from 6 P.M. to 7 P.M. in Munhwa Hall. Professor Yeong Mahn You from Hanyang University will attend as a guest speaker. Only a hundred people can participate in the lecture.
The third program is “The Reading Camp”, which is planned to challenge students’ reading, writing, and speaking skill. It will be held on October 12th and in November for eight hours, starting from 9 A.M. in the New Engineering Building. The admission fee is free, but only 80 people can participate. The registration is open from September 26th to October 11th. Every undergraduate student can apply on the Central Library’s web page. The Central Library prepared various activities rather than just conducting a speech, so students can actually experience and enjoy what they do. Lunch and souvenirs will be provided by the library to all participants.
Lastly, “Mentor Library”, also called the “Human Book” is the new system which students can “borrow” the person in the same way you borrow books. It is different from the lectures or discussions with professors. Anyone with special talent can volunteer and share their knowledge. This program works with just a few people; two or three as one group, since it’s designed for effective communication. The Central Library is planning to build a new web page only for the “Mentor Library” program during this coming winter break. The program will also be provided by the way of trial to give students an opportunity to experience the new program in October and November.
Recently, the Central Library has done many projects, such as interior relocation, construction work and development of reading programs. By the library’s effort to provide a better reading environment, students have more chance to participate in various programs and have close relationships with books.
