Nanqiao Town sets up 'book shelves' at public places to promote reading

Mar 16, 2018

Nanqiao Town in Fengxian has launched a public campaign to promote reading recently.

A total of 10 "city book shelves" have been set up at Bailian Shopping Mall, Tesco Supermarket, Bank of Beijing and other busy areas.

The book shelves accept donated books.

"We'd rather share books with other readers than let them sit there collecting dust at home," said a local resident surnamed Shen. 

Some books carry a random bookmark inside and readers get such bookmarks can exchange them for small gifts at book shelf stations.

Those interested can also sign up to become volunteers at one of the stations to manage and maintain the books.
