April 17th, invited by Nankai University, the members of the Party Committee of Xinglong District, located in Chengde (Hebei Province) participated in the opening ceremony of the “Tianjin University Students’ Association for Public Interest and Seminar on Public Interest”. After the speech about public interest and a round of questions and answers, the members of the Party Committee of Xinglong District signed a memorandum with Nankai University for the construction of the first local Nankai Reading Room.


Thanks to the support of Nankai University’s Student Affairs Office of Party Committee and School League Committee, with the books collected from public donations, and the assistance of some companies, “Nankai Reading Room” project helped many schools in poor areas to build up reading rooms. Until now, many Nankai Reading Rooms have been established in different provinces, including Jiangxi, Hunan, and others.


Tianjin University Students’ Association for Public Interest was launched by Nankai University thanks to the memberships of nearly 20 universities, including Tianjin University, Tianjin Normal University, Tianjin Polytechnic University, and others. The Association is supported by many famous community groups launched by the China Youth Development Foundation, such as “Ziqiang Association”, “Teach For China”, and “Siyuan Association”. The first practical base will be located in Xinglong District. The friendly contacts between Tianjin University Students’ Association for Public Interest and the district will be promoted using various methods, including the establishment of a Nankai Reading Room, assistance to the children of the immigrant workers, provision of information on public interest, and so on.
