Date:2013-09-03
To celebrate its 30th anniversary and the completion of the renovation project of its new hall and reopening, the Huludun Cultural Center will unveil “Wonderful 30 Years—Anniversary Celebrations” on the morning of September 15, with concurrent activities including stage performances, a celebration ceremony, a visit by the reading mascot A-long, and a pop-up book exhibition. Dumplings as well as 300 cakes provided by traditional pastry makers, including Lao Xue Hua Zhai, Yu-Jan-Shin, Paochuan Food, and Jiang Da Fang, will be served to participants in celebration of the center’s 30th anniversary.

Founded in 1983 as the Taichung County Cultural Center and renamed the Huludun Cultural Center after the merger of Taichung City and Taichung County in 2011, this center plays a leading role in preserving local cultural, promoting civic aesthetics and reading, as well as cultivating talents in arts and culture. The center itself is an excellent learning environment for parents and children. In addition to that, it is one of the nation’s most important museums due to its devotion to preserving and promoting weaving craftsmanship typical of Taichung’s cultural history. As the center celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, it also steps into the beginning of another splendorous three decades.

The Huludun Cultural Center has just undergone months of renovations on the weaving museum and reading spaces. The library area, which originally occupied the first and second floors, has been expanded to the third floor to accommodate wider readers’ needs. The new reading space is designed for different age groups. On the first floor are the periodical area, a space for elderly readers, and a children’s reading room. The second floor consists of the general reading area and the third floor is divided into a reference collection area, teenage readers’ room, a comic book area, and an audiovisual collection area. To highlight its position as a local cultural center, a special space is allocated for the art of weaving, where specialty books from foreign countries including France, Korea, and Japan, are housed. On the lobby floor, there is an exhibition space for the cultural and creative industry, an enhancement of the center’s image as a promoter of the art of weaving. To celebrate its re-opening, the library just acquired one million dollars worth of new books and welcomes the public to borrow and read them.
