Second-hand Charity Book Fair
This charity book fair was conducted twice a year, in April as well as in November.It was then organised by Xim Phou Moon. This book fair would be held for one whole week, 2nd til 6th November 2015 at Energy Hub, Sunway College from 10 am til 5pm. Volunteers were needed to arrange books and also entertain the customers who have enquiries on the second-hand books displayed on the tables. Besides that, some of the volunteers happened to be volunteered themselves to set up the booth one day before the event. It took almost three hours to set up the booth entirely.This earlier set up would make the organisers easier to arrange books that were displayed on the tables prepared by themselves and save time as well.
During this one whole week event, there were volunteers exclaimed that they were able to speak confidently in front of the customers who they really did not know who the customers were plus they were truly understand what volunteerism is from which they have learned from the organisers by hearing the true stories that the organisers had faced during their volunteering works. Those stories had made the volunteers feel touched by hearing from the organisers. These stories the volunteers have heard have made changes in the volunteers’ mindsets and were willing to stay up til 6pm to clear and remove the books from the tables when the book fair was going to end on the last day of the event.
