As many of our families will be heading back home or abroad this summer, you may come across books about the local culture that may benefit our Magic Years community. As an IB World School, it is important to recognize world cultures and languages. Magic Years aims to celebrate and respect people from all cultures and gain international understanding.
Should you have the opportunity this summer, we like you to purchase books for our library and we will reimburse you.
Below are some guidelines to consider for purchasing books.
Price Range: maximum 1000 baht for 2 books or more
- Local culture, heritage and celebrations
- Classic stories from your country
- Newly published books from your culture
- Local history
Categories that we would like to further develop within our library collection are:
- Sports (balance of male/female pictures)
- Local contributions to global society (i.e. Ghandi from India, Nobel Prize winners, Inventors)
Ordering books to Thailand adds additional costs, and with your support we can make our collection of books more culturally diverse. The books do not need to be new and you may consider visiting: libraries, second-hand stores, outlets, clearance/sale racks of book store chains, and if your family friends have books they would like to share. Digital books or recordings are also welcome.
In addition, if you have any old books that you would like to donate, we would love to give it a home in our library.
