British Corner

British Corner

In order to develop multicultural services and facilitate cultural exchanges to service the general public in the central regions, we especially signed a memorandum of agreement with the British Council's Taipei Office to establish the British Corner in our multicultural service area. Via the establishment of partnerships, we collect relevant publications, periodicals, magazine, promote studying abroad, and Britain-related events encompassing the areas of education, examinations, culture, English-learning, tourism, and arts. The objective of the British Corner is to provide Britain-related info, reference, and services in hopes to satisfy the general public's demands for English education, culture, and information, as well as providing the people with a leisure area free of charge. The Corner hopes to implement the National Library's ideals and in the spirit of friendly services, providing the general public with rich and diverse leisure and learning resources.
