First law on public libraries enacted

China’s first law on public libraries took effect on Jan 1.

It requires governments at the county level or higher to set up public libraries that provide reading services and spaces, and are open to the public for free.

Libraries must also organize public lectures, activities to promote reading, training and exhibitions, and other public cultural service programs.
