New library branch to be built

    A new branch of the Shanghai Children’s Library will be built in the western downtown area, the city government said over the weekend.

    It will be located inside a new urban park on Daduhe Road in Putuo District, along Suzhou Creek. The new library will become a center to promote information, knowledge, reading and cultural heritage for children aged between 4 and 16.

    The design of the new facility was unveiled for the first time over the weekend. It shows what looks to be a “floating pavilion” with a rooftop garden. Spiral stairs and bridges take readers from a garden on the ground floor into the main building.
