Central library - Week-end activities


    The Central Library of Macao, as a subsidiary of the Cultural Institute, organised the conference “Visible history – Macanese Buildings in the Chinese Architectural Style”, which took place in the Sir Robert Ho Tung Library on 28 February. The event was quite a success, with almost a hundred people attending.

    During the conference, the head of the Cultural Institute’s Cultural Heritage Department, Stephen Chan, spoke about the state of cultural heritage preservation in Macao, concentrating on the history and architectural characteristics of Barra Temple and the Mandarin’s House, together with the state of restoration of the Tak Seng Pawnshop. There was also a showing of a film of old Macao and a question and answer session.

    As well as conferences, every weekend the Central Library organises activities for different age groups to encourage reading. These take place either in the main library or in the branch libraries.

    On 6 March, at 2.30 p.m., there will be a “Young People’s Library Trip” in the main building of the Central Library, to introduce young people to the buildings and the services available in Macao’s public libraries. At 3.00 p.m. there will be a “Finding Your Way Around the Internet Course” in the Sir Robert Ho Tung Library, where participants will be shown how to use the internet, how to send and receive electronic mail and to search for information using search engines.

    On 7 March, from 10.30 a.m. to 12-30 p.m., there will be another “Family Stories Workshop” in the Central Library main building. From 3.00 p.m. until 5.00 p.m. there will be a “Children’s Art Workshop” in the Ilha Verde Library, where children can learn in a “hands-on” environment.
