Beijing launched its first underground library "M Subway•Library" on Jan 12. Citizens riding the special train on subway Line 4 can read e-books provided by the National Library by scanning the QR code in the carriage.
Adjacent to the remains of the Yuan Dynasty city of Dadu, the Beitucheng station on Line 8 presents itself as a huge blue and white porcelain container. It is designed to show visitors a strong Chinese style. The bracket lights on the walls and ceiling are brimming with a spirit of modernity.
