Eslite Bookstore has opened on the first floor of Building A of the Chiayi Art Museum from January 2021.
The Chiayi Art Museum, which was renovated and opened last September, is the Taiwan Tobacco and Liquor Corporation’s former site, Chiayi Branch, during the Japanese rule (1895-1945).
On the theme of “a beautiful encounter between art and reading,” the Eslite bookstore has invited local artist Leong Siew-wai to create murals with the impression of Chiayi.
The bookstore also features a selection of art and lifestyle books and some experiential activities, allowing you to visit the bookstore on weekends and enjoy a leisurely cultural journey.
The museum will also plan events and book recommendations that echos the themes of the museum’s exhibitions.
What’s more? Located in the former police station and fire department during the Japanese rule in Huwei, Yunlin, the Eslite Huwei Store is the first Eslite store in Taiwan to be opened in a historical building.
In celebration of its seventh anniversary, the bookstore is partnering with the local store “Yunlin Memory Cool” to launch a bike tour event for you to experience the daily life of the small town of Huwei and visit the quaint historical houses.
