Key Findings from the Interview

- Complains that most libraries in China are very loud and unclean
- Prefers using laptops in a quiet and private space, but has a gaming laptop that takes a lot of battery
- Wants more charging ports at convenient places in a library
- Would you rather have large, open spaces, or smaller and more enclosed spaces?
- "I prefer the latter, and most students would, too. Being in the open just makes it harder to think."

- "From my experience, since there are a lot of people in Beijing, it is insanely difficult to make sure the place is always sanitary. Most people are too lazy to even walk to a garbage place, let alone sort it themselves."
