A special reading room dedicated to Karl Marx and Marxist thought opened at Taiyuan Library, Shanxi province, on May 10.

Visitors can also enjoy an e-library, exhibition, and a teaching and lecture area.

On the west of the reading room, there’s even a Marxism-themed post office where readers can send letters and postcards.

We aim to educate primary and middle school students about contemporary Chinese Marxism using the excellent facilities provided by this room, explained the director of the library.

The reading room contains more than 20,000 volumes of books related to Marxism, including biographies of Marx and research on his key theories.
