From Focus Taiwan:

The Taipei Public Library, which curates more than 7 million volumes, increased its services to the national level Monday by allowing its members to collect and return borrowed books at nearly 10,000 convenience stores around Taiwan.

The library said the new service is an expansion of a simple book-return program it initiated in February 2015 in cooperation with FamilyMart, one of the largest convenience store chains in Taiwan.
