Lions Club donates encyclopedias

Friday, 02 August 2013 From Issue Vol. XXI No. 31 By  Vittaya Yoondorn

Eight Lions Club District 310C chapters donated Thai encyclopedias to students at 15 area schools.

District Gov. Sakchai Taechaweat and former governors Wiwat Pattanasin and Banjong Banthoonprayuk presented 500 copies of Volume 37 of the Royal Version Thai Junior Encyclopedia to the Chonburi Education Region 3 school board July 18 at Pattaya School No. 7.

Lions clubs from Pattaya, Naklua, Banglamung and Sriracha made the donation to schools including Banglamung, Nongprue, Bowin and Wat Nong Jabtao School in Chonburi.

Despite the boom in free online encyclopedias, Wiwat said Thai books continue to be helpful and popular, due in part to HM the King actively encouraging their production and use. Subjects are grouped for three age groups with each level being printed in different-sized characters.
