The construction and opening of the new reading space was an important measure for the NLC to carry out the practical activity of "I do practical things for the masses" in the Party history learning and education. In order to transform the achievements of the Party history learning and education into the driving force and measures to promote the innovation and development of the librarianship, give full play to the position role of the NLC's cultural voluntary service, and provide readers with more convenient and high quality services, the NLC carried out a wide range of volunteer service activities among the Party members, and established "The NLC Party member volunteer service team". Wei Dawei announced the official establishment of the team. After the activity, the NLC Party member volunteers led the readers to visit and experience the relevant service items of the new reading space.

The new reading space was located in the second floor of the NLC North Area, including the "immersion" reading experience area and the NLC study. The "immersion" reading experience area, which was jointly constructed by the NLC and the CNPIEC and Huawei Technology Co., Ltd., was important practice of the NLC to carry out new reading and intelligent library construction in 5G era. The "immersion" reading experience area realized new reading with the help of the fifth generation communication technology, panoramic video, VR and other advanced technologies, and created two immersive exhibitions of "Panoramic Exhibition Hall" and "Reading Tree".

For the first time, the "Panoramic Exhibition Hall" adopted a 270-degree LED three-fold screen to realize naked-eye VR effect in the huge screen. Readers could get a strong sense of immersion and real picture sense when they were in the panoramic space surrounded by three high definition large screens. "Reading Tree" combined mobile intelligent devices, VR devices and tree-shaped exhibition shelves. Readers could watch different types of VR video resources, such as ancient books, Chinese paintings, cultural relics, city impressions, through different VR device terminals on site. The products presented to readers this time included the newly developed VR products of the Yongle Encyclopedia, which were based on the Yongle Encyclopedia collected by the NLC. By using the "5g + VR" technology, integrating 4K/8K panoramic video shooting, three-dimensional animation and other technical means, we created an immersive and time-space spanning cultural experience for the readers.

In order to create better reading environment, the NLC had built a study, which would recommend excellent books for readers, including award-winning books of Wenjin Book Award, classic books of Chinese traditional culture, etc., and provide cultural salon activity places for people from library community, publishing community and all walks of life. Readers could meet friends, visit micro exhibitions of excellent books, and enjoy cultural and creative products with traditional Chinese classics elements. The NLC study would gradually become a reading space and leisure station with thoughts, culture, aesthetics, leisure and other elements, providing more comprehensive and diversified services for the walk-in readers.
