National Library Station (simplified Chinese: 国家图书馆站; traditional Chinese: 國家圖書館站; pinyin: Guójiā Túshūguǎn Zhàn) is an interchange station on Line 4 and Line 9 of the Beijing Subway. Its name is derived from the nearby National Library of China. The station features a double-island interchange layout, with Line 4 trains on the outside and Line 9 trains on the inside, which allows most riders to change lines simply by crossing the platform, instead of walking between levels. This configuration is known as cross-platform interchange.[1] The station handles 106,000 transfers between Lines 4 and 9 per day.[2] The platform for Line 16 will be built under the Line 4 and Line 9 platform.[3]
