The Bus Library sponsored by SAMCO

   

The 1.5 m wide and 6 m long book bus serves as a mini library with wooden shelves, tables and chairs for readers, who need a quiet and creative reading space. It was designed in reproduction of the city’s bus route no. 8 - one familiar to students, operating between District 8’s station to Thu Duc University Village.

In addition to the book bus, visitors to the city’s Book Street can contemplate and read various books right at the “Knowledge" Bus Stop, equipped with bookshelves and wooden benches, with its book-shaped canopy. Also, readers and visitors can get free wifi access to find information on books and activities taking place at the Book Street and the city’s bus lines. The electronic information display is HCM City’s first model, a part of the plan to prepare for technological applications at bus stops of the Department of Transport.
