Children focused on reading books.

This is another batch of books received by the Public Welfare Library. . This public welfare library is designed to have a capacity of 30,000 volumes. Currently, there are not many books in the collection. I hope to get more donations from caring people.
The public welfare library has been open for more than a month, and there are two or three hundred readers every day.
Entering the public welfare library, the children quietly flipped through the books, some sitting, and some leaning against the wall. The children gathered around the pile of books donated by Jimei University Library.
Mr. Huang from Jimei University Library said the books were donated by members of the library's party branch. In the future, the Jimei University Library also plans to pair up with the Jingjing Public Welfare Library to mobilize party members and people around it to donate books to the Public Welfare Library. Teachers will bring volunteers to carry out reading promotion activities and implement a study tour plan for returning children during the winter and summer vacations, hoping to affect more children and cultivate their good habits of reading since childhood.
Since the opening of the Jingjing Public Welfare Library on June 1, it has borrowed more than 2,000 times and received tens of thousands of readers. The library is operated by Xinli Social Workers. Cheng Xiangchao, the general director of Xinli Social Workers, said that two to three hundred people walk into the library every day. He said that the library currently has only six or seven thousand volumes, most of which were donated by people from all walks of life. In addition to books, there are also donations from caring people. Some donate 300 to 400 yuan a month, and some donate 1,000 yuan. Every expenditure of the library is open to the public and is supervised by people from all walks of life.
Cheng Xiangchao calculated the operating costs, deducted the monthly donations from all walks of life, not counting the labor costs of social workers, and the public welfare library needed to invest more than 5,000 yuan per month.
Serving children of migrant workers
His insistence moved the landlord
The Jingjing Public Welfare Library was transformed from a private house, and construction started in October last year. Cheng Xiangchao said that the original plan was to establish a college. Later, considering that the Jingjing community had a population of 20,000 to 30,000, many parents did not have time to take care of their children, so they decided to open a library as a platform to carry out activities to keep children away from TV and video games .
At that time, only two or three social workers supported Cheng Xiangchao's idea, and others objected that the operation of the public welfare library would consume too much financial resources and energy. However, Cheng Xiangchao still adheres to this plan. He spent three days looking for a place and fancy a private house where the kindergarten was closed. He told the landlord what he thought, and the landlord was moved, and he received 3,000 yuan less monthly rent to show his support.
Lovers donate 4 tons of rice
Social workers sell rice part-time to raise money
With the venue in place, we still need to design and decorate, but we can't raise so much money for a while. Therefore, Cheng Xiangchao persuaded the social workers to take out their wages and paid a total of 170,000 yuan.
In order for the public welfare library to operate, Cheng Xiangchao and the social workers raised charity funds everywhere. A caring person in Beijing learned that he had donated 4 tons of rice. During that time, Cheng Xiangchao and social workers became part-time rice sellers. "I was a little worried at first, I was afraid I couldn't sell it, but I didn't expect there were so many caring people around me." Cheng Xiangchao said that he accidentally broke his right hand for a while, but insisted on giving it to those caring people who bought rice every weekend. Meter.
The company responsible for library design and decoration was also moved by his insistence. The person in charge of the design company learned that he had only raised 20,000 yuan in charity, and mobilized caring people in the industry, and soon raised 50,000 yuan in charity and a lot of materials. The decoration company provided the best environmental paint for free.
