Book Donation and Exchange Center Receives 10,000 Books from Fairy Tale Writer
Zheng Yuanjie, one of China’s famous fairy tale writers donated 10,000 books to the Shenzhen Book Donation and Exchange Center in Futian. Most the books Zheng donated were some of his popular fairy tales. And most of the books that he donated will be sent to rural village school in Guangdong. Zheng is also the founder and writer of a known children’s literature magazine The King of Fairy Tales which coincidentally is also his nickname.
According to Song Wei the president of the Shenzhen Children’s Library said that the Shenzhen Book Donation and Exchange Center is the first of its kind in Guangdong. The book center is also the hub of the Shenzhen Children’s Library charity program which collects educational materials ranging from books, computers and stationary for village schools in ten of the poorest areas in the province.
The book center will be working alongside city schools and the Tencent Foundation in helping to raise funds and collecting books. Tencent Foundation has already donated 300,000 yuan and ten local primary schools including Zhulin Primary School and Futian Primary School have signed contracts for future cooperation with the book center.
