GZ's 24-hour libraries for sleepless book lovers

If you become distraught at the closure of the library, here is some good news for you. A new 24-hour library opened to the public in Huangpu district on October 25, enabling book lovers to read or borrow books anytime they like.


Yuanchuang Coffee Library is the first 24-hour library in Guangzhou and covers an area of more than 1,000 square meters. The library provides a collection of 14,000 books focusing particularly on scientific innovation and business start-ups, as well a fast Wi-Fi coverage.


Besides a spacious reading area for visitors, the library also features function rooms for companies to hold roadshows, a coffee bar, a fitness area and a children's zone.


According to the spokesperson for Yuanchuang Coffee Library, visitors can do a lot in the library from reading, business negotiating to pulling a last-minute all-nighter.
