HCM City (VNA) – A “book bus”, a mobile book service, was launched in Ho Chi Minh City on April 21 to mark Vietnam’s 43rd National Reunification Day (April 30) and the fifth Book Day (April 21).

The bus, with the “A journey of knowledge and future” slogan, runs between District 8’s station and Thu Duc University Village, a route familiar to many local students. It serves as a mini library with wooden shelves, tables and chairs for passengers.

Along with the bus, the “Knowledge bus stop” and the city’s first Electronic Information Display at bus stop were launched, which provide information on books and activities of the Book Street and the city’s bus lines.

Speaking at the event, Deputy Director of the municipal Transport Department Vo Khanh Hung said the department will build an area in the Book Street to raise children’s awareness about traffic safety.-VNA
