CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Many citizens choose to spend summer in summer resorts, while others choose to go to cool places such as libraries, bookstores and museums to learn. Cultural venues such as bookstores, libraries and museums have become popular places for citizens in summer as various cultural activities are offered there.
“Dad, it turns out that Chongqing People Drawing Water by Xu Beihong was a depiction of Ciqikou, can we visit there next time?” 9-year-old Luo Yaxing talked to his father excitedly, after seeing the exhibition of Xu Beihong’s works during the anti-war period at Chongqing China Three Gorges Museum on August 12.
At 11 o'clock in the morning, the outdoor temperature is high, but the Three Gorges Museum is very cool. Mr. Luo said to the reporter that recently he often comes here to enjoy the cool temperature, almost every day. "It has enough space and is cool enough. There are many interesting exhibitions that can be seen and can give children a taste of art."
In addition to the Three Gorges Museum, the Chongqing Library's good reading environment has also attracted many citizens. When the reporter arrived at the Chongqing Library after 13:00, he found that the library was filled with citizens reading in the self-study room and reading room. "It is cool here! Not only can you read a book, but you can also go to see movies with your friends if you are tired." Zhang Xiaofeng said with a smile.
According to Ren Jing, the director of the Chongqing Library, the Chongqing Library not only allows citizens to enter the hall in advance before the opening time in the morning, but also provides a good reading environment for the public by adding seats in the self-study room and providing free heat-relieving products.
In addition, more readers are seen in Chongqing Bookstore and Sisyphe Bookstore compared with past.
"Cultural venues such as museums, libraries, bookstores have become the cool places for the citizens to escape from the heat of summer, which shows the diversity of cultural summering and reflects the increasing love for human of urban public cultural services. This is a kind of social progress." Ren Jing said. (Translated by Yang Lifu, Fathom Language Limited)
