From November, after passport registration, foreign residents can freely use the unified loan and return system, which links all 21 public libraries in the city. They can also have free access to the libraries' remote digital resources.
The unified loan and return system in Chengdu was rolled out in 2014 and gives local residents free access to all public library resources at all branches. It is the first time an entire public library system covers foreign residents.
"Chengdu has welcomed a growing number of foreigners in recent years. As public libraries we should provide services for all residents in the city, including foreign residents," said Xiao Ping, deputy chief librarian in Chengdu.
