On June 9, more than 50 students and teachers from the 2021 Chongqing, Hong Kong, and Macau University Students’ Study Camp on Bayu Culture visited the National Roosevelt Library and the former site of the Central National Library to study and experience the culture and custom of the Dragon Boat Festival.
The activity is co-sponsored by Chongqing Municipal Education Commission, Chongqing Municipal Commission of Culture and Tourism Development and Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications, and hosted by Chongqing Children’s Library and Chongqing International Youth Research Tourism Base.

It aims to take National Roosevelt Library as a link to connect the friendship of the youth of Chongqing, Hong Kong, and Macau, build a platform for exchange and cooperation among the youth for study and research, and drive the development of culture and tourism integration among the three places. Meanwhile, the activity is used as a carrier to deepen the content of study tours, strengthen the promotion and inheritance of Chinese intangible cultural heritage, and stimulate the patriotic sentiment of the youth of Chongqing, Hong Kong, and Macau.
The group first visited the Roosevelt Library to learn about the historical background and cultural heritage of the National Roosevelt Library. After the visit, they learned the culture and traditions of the Dragon Boat Festival, and also experienced the intangible cultural heritage projects in the academic lecture hall of the library. Under the guidance of the inheritors of intangible cultural heritage, students experienced making zongzi and palm weaving.
For many of the students, it was the first time to do this kind of cultural activity, and they have gained a lot of joy and a deeper understanding of traditional culture. Finally, teachers and students of the study camp and all the people attending the activity took a group photo together to record the friendship between the two sides.
