XJTLU Library Reading Month 2022

XJTLU Library launched its fourth reading month in April.  The theme of the Reading Month 2022 was “Self-Care and Positive Thinking”.

Reading Month 2022 was marked by a rich and diverse calendar of engaging activities that motivate the XJTLUers to read and think. The activities consisted of 8 online events (One Tweet, One Book, One Line, Go Reading, Vote for Your Favorite Works, Post My Cloud Playlist, Explore Your Major, World Intellectual Property Day Events) and 8 training sessions of 3 courses (Searching Professional, Let's PS Together, To Be an Effective Autonomous Learner under COVID-19 Pandemic).

The Reading Month 2022, with hundreds of people participating in the activities, established a reading culture during the special period and presented the Library’s continuing support for the students and staff members.


GO READING on Little Women Held Online

On 8 April, the 15th session of Go Reading was held online by XJTLU Library and Reader Association. The book to read this time was Little Women by American author Louisa May Alcott.

The meeting consisted of three parts - book introduction, dialogue interpretation and group discussion. Yixuan Wang, as the host of this meeting, first briefly introduced the novel, the main characters and the author's life. In the second part, several participants read a dialogue from the book playing different roles. Group discussions were then carried out on the 4 topics of "touching moments", "overcoming shortcomings", "family education" and "facing difficulties".

Despite the pandemic, the participants experienced the charm of classic literature and gained many interesting ideas by reading and sharing online.
