Post a Poem is a new activity we’re trying out this year for Poetry Month. Ms. Surridge made lovely postcards inspired by the National Poetry Month 2013 poster and they are available for free at the library. There will be a cost for delivery.
The post cards feature 4 different poetry related illustration and space on the back for a poem and an address. Everyone is invited to send poems to family and friends. You can choose to mail/deliver the postcards yourself or use our delivery options.
1 rmb for delivery within the IST campus
1 rmb for delivery by ChinaPost within China
5 rmb for delivery by ChinaPost outside of China
Proceeds from the sale will offset the cost of printing the postcards and any profit will be used to purchase library furnishings.
Important note about addresses:
If delivery to someone at IST, please write his/her full name and class, e.g., Jun Wo Smith, 7K.
If delivery to an address in China, it is best to write the address in Chinese
If delivery to an address outside of China, please write full name and address clearly, and include the country name in capital letters.
The Chinese teachers in the elementary school will be teaching and reviewing how to write country names in Chinese. The Chinese speaking library staff will also be able to assist in the writing of Chinese addresses.
