During the National Day and Mid-Autumn Festival holiday, though many people were apt to travel, some chose to enrich themselves with study. In recent days, citizens taking their children to read and buy books in libraries and book fairs could be seen everywhere. Compared with shopping, reading was more fulfilling and meaningful, said Mr. Zhang, a normal citizen.
It was known that Nanning Municipal Library has innovated in its services and launched the online book lending service of “literary atmosphere spreading across the city”. Citizens could enjoy the library service of “book delivery to home” by simply placing orders online. According to statistics, from October 1 to October 5, nearly 10,000 people visited Nanning Municipal Library, registering 938 visits and 4,757 books being borrowed in the library, and nearly 300 books were borrowed online though the service of “literary atmosphere spreading across the city”. On October 6, thousands of people came to the library to read and borrow books, which further enriched the spiritual and cultural life of people in Nanning during the holiday.
