The library, with a total floor space of 67,000 square meters, will be home to some 1.5 million books and 1 million historical documents, according to Lyu Kai, spokesperson for the eco-city.

Robots will be used to help readers navigate around the library, and readers can borrow books by using their smartphone to scan the barcode.
