In order to meet readers’ demands, the Macao Public Library (BPM) under the Cultural Affairs Bureau launches the “Annual Collection of Recommendations for Newspapers / Periodicals 2019-2020”. Residents are welcome to recommend the subscription of their favourite newspapers or periodicals from today to 4 March (Sunday). They may complete the “Newspaper / Periodical Recommendation Form” and submit it to any branch of the Macao Public Library or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The submission of the desired newspapers and periodicals can also be made through the online recommendation form which can be downloaded at Macao Public Library webpage (on Service Guide – Book Purchase Recommendation). The Library will analyse the recommended materials collected, and include the newspapers and periodicals which meet the development objectives of the library collection and therefore which will be inscribed on the 2019-2020 Possible Acquisitions List.
