In support of the celebration of the National Book Month slated in November, the IMC/Library hold its institutional event BOOK FAIR 2023. The primary objective of the Book Fair is to promote and support the academic aspect of our educational institution while fostering a love for reading and literature among our students. Additionally, the library is committed to providing our students, faculty, and community members with access to a wide variety of books that will not only enrich their academic knowledge but also contribute to their personal growth and development.
This year’s book fair features an exhibit of a variety of latest books and learning materials from different publishers and bookstores. It also displays discounted books such as storybooks, bible stories, graphic novels, teaching references and others. This will also give our teachers and administrator’s an opportunity to choose the instructional materials that they need in teaching the different subject areas covered by our curriculum and update them with the latest trends in literature and publishing industry. This Book Fair serves as a fundraiser for the school to improve library collection and services.
The objectives of this event are:
Encourage reading among people of all ages by providing access to diverse books.
Promote total awareness of the latest booksellers and motivate them to enhance their reading abilities by allowing them to choose the books they would like to read.
Help students become successful readers and let them enjoy creative ways of learning through their love for reading through storytelling, comic reading, and creative workshops.
Develop camaraderie with other students by joining class activities and contests and
Generate revenue to fund educational and cultural programs of the library.
