A library in Taiwan has been added with 5,000 Vietnamese digital books, given as gifts by a Ho Chi Minh City-based publishing house on Saturday.

The copyrighted Vietnamese-language books, covering a wide range of topics and genres, are now available for readers at the Taipei-based National Taiwan Library.

The books were handed over by Vietnam’s Tre Publishing House to celebrate the opening of the new reading room for Southeast Asian Books, including Vietnamese titles, at the National Taiwan Library.

The library also allocates annual budget to purchase Vietnamese books for Vietnam’s community in Taiwan and Taiwanese learning Vietnamese, according to director Zheng Lai-chang.

The Vietnamese section of the library currently has hard copies of Vietnamese books from well-known authors such as Son Nam, Nguyen Nhat Anh, and Nguyen Vinh Phuc.

Vietnamese has since the 2018-19 academic year become one of the seven Southeast Asian languages being taught as a second language at schools in Taiwan.
