Luncheon program Nov. 19 focuses on China

BOONE—Members of Appalachian State University’s Belk Library and Information Commons will share stories, photos and a video of their May visit to China during the Appalachian Pathways Luncheon Thursday, Nov. 19, at the Broyhill Inn and Conference Center on campus.

The luncheon begins at noon and costs $19, which includes lunch, beverage, dessert and gratuity. The registration deadline is Monday, Nov. 17. To register, visit Call 262-2530 for additional information.

Mary Reichel, Allan Scherlen and Xiaorong Shao will present the program. The librarians spent several weeks in China last spring to visit with librarians at Fudan University in Shanghai, Shaanxi Normal University in Xi’an, and Beijing Normal University in Beijing.

The trip culminated with a formal agreement between Appalachian and Fudan University to participate in future exchanges of librarians, culture and information beginning in August 2009.
