Abstract: The National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) Library in Taiwan has been at the forefront of promoting sustainable development via various approaches. Based on the passion of SDG4 and the cooperation with professors and students across academic fields, the NCKU librarians has made significant progress towards fulfilling many SDGs via providing services to underprivileged and physically disabled individuals in Taiwan. This library's transformation into "LibRE" enables freedom to Recoordinate, Reconnect and Recreate, contributing to global SDG efforts. The NCKU [BOOKS] ONE CITY-MOBILE LIBRARY initiative has promoted reading and knowledge transfer to rural areas, serving over 3,000 people through interactive popular-science-education-filled activities. THE READER, a collection of audiobooks recited by students, has been available to provide knowledge resources to over 3,600 visually impaired persons. NCKU Library also organizes the [ONE BOOK-ONE WORLD] Book Fair, which showcases timeless classics through installation art, lectures and other activities. These initiatives have resulted in tens of thousands of users of all ages in the library, creating an inclusive environment for readers and disseminating information in a sustainable way. In conclusion, NCKU Library's initiatives serve as an inspiration for achieving SDGs by bringing together diverse communities and promoting sustainable development through innovative and inclusive approaches.
