In order to facilitate readers to purchase Cultural Affairs Bureau’s publications with ease via Internet, the Cultural Affairs Bureau (IC) launched its Online Book Shop last year, and it has been well received by local and overseas readers since its establishment. On the occasion of its first anniversary of the Online Book Shop service, IC launches special offers on the purchase of IC’s publications. Readers may enjoy a 20% discount on a wide selection of best-selling books and Review of Culture through the Online Book Shop from today until 30 November, so as to further promote reading.
IC offers over 300 types of books and periodicals on the Online Book Shop, including publications in traditional Chinese, simplified Chinese, Portuguese and English, with a rich and diverse range of categories, such as history, literature, visual arts, performing arts, culture, and academic research and studies. IC strives to provide convenient and efficient services for readers to select and purchase publications. Readers may place orders on the website and make electronic payments, then choose to receive books by Express Mail Service (EMS) or by picking up books from the libraries under the auspices of the Cultural Affairs Bureau. The website is supported by the Electronic Payment Platform of the Macao Postal Savings – a stable and efficient payment system. Readers from Macao and abroad can request the delivery of publications through the Express Mail Service (EMS) of the Macao Post and Telecommunications Bureau to their designated locations; local readers can also choose to pick up their books at the 14 IC’s public libraries (located in Macao Peninsula, Taipa, and Coloane) in person.
Online Book Shop of the Cultural Affairs Bureau will launch special offers from time to time. For more information, please visit the Online Book Shop website at www.icm.gov.mo/bookshop or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
