Tsukuba Public Library: Which Magazines Do You Want

Author:Shaney Crawford, Issue: December 2003, Topic: Books

I volunteer at Tsukuba Public Library, so the staff there often asks me questions about their multicultural services. This month, they are looking into their magazine subscriptions. I had some ideas of my own, but I thought I would ask for some input from the international residents here in Tsukuba. I sent an email out to the TAIRA list and got some interesting responses. In total, fourteen (14) people gave their opinions. It would be better if that number were higher,
