A GROUP of Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) students are calling on members of the public to donate books during a book donation drive that will take place from March 19 to 27.

The books will be distributed to ‘Mukim Buku Rimba’ in Kg Rimba and the Senior Citizen Activity Centre (PKWE) in Lambak Kanan.

According to a press statement, the students are conducting the project as part of their Community Outreach Programme under the Brunei Youth Council.

It is hoped that the project would help promote the community libraries so that people will be aware of the existence of these libraries.

It also hopes to encourage more people to utilise library resources and to develop a reading habit.

Members of the public can drop their book donations off at the Brunei Youth Council office at No 8, Block C, Anggerek Desa Flat in Berakas from 8am to 4pm during the said collection period.

Both new and old books of any categories are welcomed.
