Taiwan: Taipei Public Library Expands Services Through 10,000 Convenience Stores
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.
Following the service of allowing its members to return books through FamilyMart, it further allied with the 7-Eleven and Hi-Life convenience store chains and expanded the service to the degree that when members register online to borrow materials from the library, they can collect them at any designated convenience store in the country.
