Synergy Correlation

National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) Library responds to "World Book and Copyright Day" in 2023 by creating a happy and meaningful campus environment. With a focus on caring for the physical and mental health of faculty and students, the library launches a series of activities under the theme of "Healing Playground Themed Book Exhibition." From April 25th to June 28th, selected collections on "Pets," "Positivity," "Aromatherapy," "Desserts," and more will be exhibited simultaneously at the Main Library on the Cheng Kung Campus and the Medical Library on the Cheng An Campus. Readers are also allowed to borrow the displayed books, providing immediate access to comforting and healing content through literature.


A simple and warm opening ceremony for the exhibition was held at the Main Library on the 25th. Vice President Yuh-Neu Chen, Associate Librarian  Hsi-Jen Chen, and Dean of Student Affairs Liang-Yi Hung attended the event. Vice President Chen praised the relaxed atmosphere created by the exhibition, emphasizing the importance of reading as a lifelong learning pathway. She cited statistics showing that Israelis read an average of 68 books per year, the highest in the world. Books are the crystallization of wisdom, and reading allows one to absorb a wealth of knowledge that cannot be taken away by others. Reading is also a way to heal and relieve stress, and she encouraged everyone to read more, treat books as lifelong companions, and maintain mental balance and tranquility through reading.


Associate Librarian Hsi-Jen Chen stated that modern life is stressful, and the theme of the Healing Playground book exhibition and the layout of the venue aim to help everyone relax. Unlike previous exhibitions where books could only be read on-site, the books displayed this time can be borrowed as usual. The exhibition will continue until the end of the semester, aiming to empower students with full energy for their next steps.Dean of Student Affairs Liang-Yi Hung expressed the hope that every reader attending the exhibition could find the power of self-healing. Even in times of adversity or darkness, one can quickly move forward.


The venue was decorated with various plush toys of different sizes, and plush dolls hung from the ceiling, creating an atmosphere of healing and amusement. In addition, both libraries set up a "Gashapon" machine, with each capsule containing an electronic book, hoping that the process of playing Gashapon would not only be fun but also lead to encounters with serendipitous e-books, bringing joy to reading. Vice President Yuh-Neu Chen and Associate Librarian Hsi-Jen Chen also tried the Gashapon, experiencing the long-lost joy of playing and officially declaring the opening of the "World Book and Copyright Day" book exhibition. Dean of Student Affairs Liang-Yi Hung left a message on the message board at the exhibition, "Everyone is precious, unique, and the only one in the world," encouraging everyone to love themselves and take care of their physical and mental health.


On the opening day and May 29th, the library collaborated with the Counseling Center of the Student Affairs Office to launch "Stress Relief Healing Experience" at the Main Library. Services included aromatherapy stress relief, consultation, heart rate variability testing, and gravity blanket experience. Each library also set up a "Scenic Message Board," encouraging visitors to leave encouraging and moving messages.


Most people were curious about "heart rate variability." The Counseling Center explained that this test indirectly assesses the activity of the autonomic nervous system and helps understand one's physical and mental stress and fatigue. As for the "gravity blanket," the blanket provides some weight to the body, helping to alleviate stress and anxiety. The goal of the experience activities is to help everyone understand how to make good use of the resources provided by the Counseling Center and take care of their physical and mental health.


The two-month Healing Playground themed book exhibition series is rich in content, including exhibitions, stress relief and healing experiences, and two special lectures. On May 4th, Assistant Professor  Chih-Kai Yang from the Department of Forestry at National Pingtung University delivered a speech on "The Healing Island - What Plants Tell Us." On May 24th, Associate Professor Hsin-Ping Hsu from the Department of Psychology at NCKU will talk about "Positivity is Not Just Happiness: Understanding Positive Psychology and Its Applications."


On May 11th, there will be a "Silk Screen Printing Workshop" at the B1 Art Gallery of the Main Library. There will also be 6 sessions of "Film Appreciation," with screenings starting from May 2nd to June 6th every Tuesday evening at 18:30. Exciting, rich, and warm book exhibition series activities are waiting for you to participate.
