East branch of library seeking readers’ notes

The East Branch of Shanghai Library in the Pudong New Area, which will launch its trial operation soon, is now collecting readers’ messages from the public.

People whose messages boast fine content and calligraphy will be invited to the Shanghai Library East for on-site writing on the world’s largest hand-made paper (about 50 square meters).

This work will be the first exhibit at the new library.

The message-collecting campaign, which began yesterday, will run through the end of this month. Foreigners can also join in.

The messages should be a sentence of around ten words written by brush or pen on an A3 or A4 size paper.

Participants can take pictures or short videos, whose file format should be jpg, jpeg, png or mp4 and size should be less than 100 MB, and submit them to the event page on the library’s official website.

Meanwhile, the library has released a series of photos about its interior look. Through a large glass facade, sunshine lights up the hall and matches up with the yellowish-brown grating wall and milk-white uprights. After it opens, the number of readers it receives in a year is estimated to reach 4 million.
