BEIJING - China is crafting a law to allow its public libraries to be named after their donators, according to a draft released on Wednesday.
The draft law was published by the Legislative Affairs Office of the State Council in order to seek public opinion.
The draft stipulates that special literature collections at public libraries can also be named after the donators.
Under the new draft, people who build or donate toward the building of public libraries will be offered tax preferences or other supportive policies.
The authority will provide financial support for libraries which are owned by universities, scientific research institutes or government and open to the public, it said.
