The highlight of this series of activities is the "Book of Change" program: from 40 original books prepared by the Library, each reader when taking a book to read will share his or her own book to others. Joining this activity, student Nguyen Thi Anh Nguyet – class CD14TA1 excitedly said: "Thanks to "Book of Change", I can have a chance to read many interesting books as well as sharing my favorite books to other students”.
