Jiading library excels in Shanghai

( chinadaily.com.cn ) 2015-01-09

The Jiading library beat out Shanghai's other district and county libraries in the annual evaluation, ranking first and receiving recognition as an advanced collective in 2014.

With the aim of improving its services to local people, the library has added a string of facilities, such as a new book house without enclosing walls, a 24-hour self-service library, and smart libraries at the metro stations and shopping areas.

The library has also organized a variety of activities to stimulate local people's interests in reading, including reading contests for Chinese traditional classics, culture lectures, classical music appreciation and storytelling for children.

The library, with a reader-centered service philosophy, will continue to offer more cultural services to local people.
