It presents its own solutions for the sustainable development of public libraries in the future. Public libraries are important participants in society, and the new building of Zhejiang Library positions itself as "the gateway to knowledge, the university beside you", aiming to take advantage of green new technologies to create a brand new public cultural service model. In the design and construction process, the project actively innovates in office technology and infrastructure, using affordable and clean energy to minimize paper pollution and other environmental issues. While promoting the intelligent development of the library, it also coordinates the relationship between user needs, library development, and environmental protection, addressing social needs such as education, health, and heritage protection, in order to contribute to the sustainable development of public libraries in the future.
