For example, in the “Book to Cure Disease Medicine Shop”, readers can bring their own old books to the old book new knowledge area, will use books to the “Beauty Packer” and fill out the old book classification label. 


Staff will help readers to old books for emotional labels classification, and will be placed in the “medicine cabinet”, becoming the emotional blind box books.
