At the entrance of Ciyou Temple sits a lorry painted with brightly colored snail murals; this is Songshan Community College’s multicultural mobile mini-library, which together with its eye-catching snail murals, has toured every nook and cranny of the area.
Reading is considered to be the soul of education and inextricably linked with lifelong learning. What's more, the competitiveness of a city has a lot to do with the public’s level of knowledge; therefore, Songshan Community College feels the long-term promotion of “reading” is of paramount importance. Songshan Community College utilizes all kinds of festivals to quietly go about promoting reading habits in the community. Through the mobile library and Songshan branch of Taipei Public Library, books are being made available to develop better reading habits in people, especially children. It hopes that through such reading activities, social trends can be reversed and a culture of reading reestablished in Taiwan.
