Bingwen Library—A Public Library Built by Haidilao
The name “Bingwen” is taken from the grandfather of Mr. Zhang Yong, Chairman of Haidilao in honor of the old gentleman and as a way of giving back to society. Our motto is “Think and aspire, read and learn”. The public library project was initiated to boost cultivation of the mind, encourage people to read more and better and build a place for permanent learning. Located on the third floor of Xuhai Times Square, the library fosters a dynamic modern space across an area of 1,080 square meters, which are divided into several sections by an entire GRG decorative material and book shelves. It employs the Chinese Library Classification (CLC) or Classification for Chinese Libraries (CCL) scheme to classify over 30,000 books into 26 categories. Visitors can read e-books, borrow printed books, and enjoy interactive reading sessions and public lectures.
