Warm Winter Reading Action

Hangzhou has been identified as the nation’s demonstrative city with well-established social credit system in 2015. In order to continuously improve the social awareness of honesty and credit, promote credit–based programmes, and help to realize a new era of openness, sharing, coexistence and co-reading, Hangzhou Public Library is taking the lead in initiating "Reading + Credit" service mode. Readers can borrow books based on their credit scores and get their books delivered to their homes.


Public Library Law of the People's Republic of China was officially implemented on 1 January, 2018.
