Browse & Borrow

Discover more about China through our “browse & borrow” programme.

From the classic literary masterpiece “A Dream of Red Mansions” to contemporary work by authors such as Nobel prize winner MO Yan or contemporary author YAN Geling our library holds a wide range of dual language novels, as well as non-fiction books on arts, architecture, business, language learning, coffee-table pictorial books and a special collection celebrating Scotland’s links with China stretching back over the last two centuries.
