Taipei tops other cities in terms of libraries: survey

TAIPEI--Taipei topped Taiwan's cities and counties in a survey on the quality of the country's public libraries and library usage, with the city's residents borrowing more books than anywhere else in Taiwan, according to the survey's results released Tuesday.

Following behind Taipei was the outlying Penghu County, Miaoli County, Hualien County, the outlying Kinmen County, and Nantou County,the Chinese-language Global Views Monthly said in a statement on its"reading competitiveness" survey.

Kaohsiung and Tainan — two of the country's five major municipalities, along with Taipei, New Taipei and Taichung — finished seventh and 10th respectively.

The survey judged 21 cities and counties for 2011 based on 11 criteria, including the average number of books borrowed from libraries per person, the average number of people served per library, and library accessibility.
