Utilizing modern information technology and devices, the Yancheng Book House provides not only the comprehensively self-help services, like using free WIFI, registering library cards, borrowing and returning books, checking, reserving and replacing cards etc., but services like borrowing electronic books, mobile libraries and Wechat libraries. Citizens could borrow at a time 4 books within 160 yuan with the library cards or ID cards. The time limit for books about art and literature is 15 days, while for the other, it’s 30 days. And people can renew their cards at the self-help devices or the Wechat public account of the city library.
