Mori Rong or Rong Laoshi to her students is HS LRC’s featured reader for this month of December. Rong Laoshi is one of the frequent HS Chinese faculty who visits the HS LRC and often does not leave the library without borrowing a book.

Out of all the books that Mori Rong borrowed, her favorite is Qin Ai de An de lie (Dear Andreas). “My favorite book in the HS LRC is Qin Ai de An de lie. This book documents the email conversation between a mother and her son who studies away from home”, shares Rong Laoshi.

Mori Rong also expresses her feelings towards the HS LRC and conveys, “The HS LRC is a very comfortable place to read books. I found a lot of interesting books there and the librarians [and library staff] are so kind and friendly. I really appreciate their effort”.
