Each region has a different reading culture, in the inter-regional population movement, people could promote cultural exchanges between regions. Connect can provide you with two platforms for borrowing books on the left and two platforms for returning books on the right, as well as two benches for temporary rest. Connect can be deployed in subway stations, airports, and train stations as a resting reading space for passengers. Usually, passengers can get up to 5 books in Connect. After getting off at the end of the journey, you can choose to return to the book to a Connect or bring them home waiting for the next trip.
