The Tibet autonomous region will build 3,331 more rural village libraries in 2011 with 30,000-yuan fund for each, news from the regional press and publication sector.

So far, altogether 2,000 rural libraries have been set up in Tibet since the rural library project was initiated in 2007.

The first batch of village libraries will be completed in June 2011.

Tibet has also consistently supplemented publications to the existing rural libraries and updated book catalogue, which comprises presently a total of 2,680 volumes of 948 kinds of books, according to the latest statistics.

The investment, quantity, structure and ratio of the publications have all met the state standards.
