Under the plan, 10 new libraries and bookcases will be opened in wards, districts and communes in the suburban areas of the city in 2021, to meet the reading needs of the residents as well as contribute to educating the people to uphold the traditions of ‘Thang Long-Hanoi thousand years of culture’, ‘City for peace’, and ‘The city for creation and absorption of the cultural quintessence of humanity’.
In 2021, the city will focus on improving the efficiency of the library system. Many book honoring activities will be held on major holidays and big national events at libraries in the city such as: Vietnam Book Day (April 21); 2021 Book Communication and Introduction Contest for children; ‘Authors and Works Exchange Event’; Book displays and exhibitions; and training courses on book-reading skills and methods, among others.

The city also plans to organize mobile libraries to 50 schools in the suburbs of Hanoi with 120,000 books, serving 40,000 students. Another 50,000 book titles will also be transferred to 125 libraries in the community, at school and prisons as well as private libraries.
