Information Services Department takes part in Hong Kong Book Fair 2019 (with photos)

     The Information Services Department (ISD) is taking part in this year's Hong Kong Book Fair from today (July 17) to July 23 under the theme "The Joy of Reading Comes Naturally".
     More than 70 government titles are on sale at the fair, with most of them being sold at discounts of 25 per cent or below. A number of specially priced books are also on sale including the "Hong Kong Culture Snapshot" series (Chinese version only) and "The Temple Gardens of Hong Kong", with discounts ranging from 60 to 85 per cent.
     A book entitled "Climate Change and Biodiversity in Hong Kong" jointly published by the Hong Kong Observatory and the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department earlier this year is also on sale at the fair. Presenting the concept of climate change and its impacts on biodiversity through beautiful photos and simple messages, the publication aims to raise public awareness on climate change issues and promote concrete actions to mitigate climate change and to conserve biodiversity.
     Customers buying publications at the ISD booth may pay in cash or with Octopus, and will receive a souvenir in return.
     To help save the environment, plastic bags will not be handed out at the booth. Purchasers are asked to bring their own carry bag.
     The ISD booth is located at Stall D38 in Hall 1A of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Wan Chai.
