"Walking on the north road of caoxi, one will miss a low-key and stable 80, but the integration of chinese and western cultural style of the building, this is built in 1847, the oldest modern library in shanghai, xujiahui library. In 1956, the Xujiaxu Library was incorporated into the Shanghai Library and collected foreign documents published before 1950. Remember that in the 1980s ~1990s, when I went to the Shanghai Library to consult the documents, because there was no Internet at that time, some books and magazines in the early period were told to be stored in the Xujiahui Library, which was not open to the public. In the 1990s, the construction of the subway station in Xujiahui district was considered by the relevant departments to dismantle the building. After the joint appeal of famous intellectuals such as Ba Jin, it was retained and renovated. It was reopened to the public in July 2003. Today's Xujiahui Library not only extends the function of reading service, document collection, but also expands the function of document research and development and exhibition tourism to meet the social demand for the outstanding historical buildings and the old foreign-language documents of human cultural heritage. Now, a "visitor stop" sign has been placed at the first floor gate. Since September 1, 2021, to ensure the security of the buildings and collections of historical and cultural protection, the Shanghai Library will renovate the interior facilities of the Xujiahui Library. During the refurbishment, the exhibition hall will be suspended."
