The Czech Embassy Manila donates books to Chinese International School Manila

The Czech Embassy Manila was privileged to be invited to donate books to the library of Chinese International School Manila (CISM), a private, non-sectarian, co-educational K-12 international school in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Metro Manila.
Last February 2012, a selection of lifestyle magazines on Czech traditions, various Czech children's books and popular young adult fiction, in both Czech and English, became part of the school library's World Languages Collection.
The donation was coursed through Mrs. Milagros Manansala, librarian of Chinese International School Manila. This is in line with the school library’s aim of “promoting literacy in both the English language and the student’s mother tongue, and providing a (more) culturally aware library service. Aside from the benefit our students will get from this cultural exchange, our students can continue to read in their own languages in a friendly, welcoming and language-nurturing CISM library.”
