On April 23rd, in honor of World Book Day, colors from Seoul’s Outdoor Library filled up once again the heart of the city. Now, and every weekend until November, families, friends, and couples can gather in the Seoul Plaza to enjoy a good reading session, lay in the sun, or eat a picnic. The program offers yoga and stretching sessions on Thursdays, classic literature readings and poetry classes on Fridays, and activities for children on weekends.
The Outdoor Library offers a respite from the long working hours standardized in South Korean culture. Moreover, it is the perfect incentive for reading and spending time outdoors. Last Sunday, the plaza was filled with a sense of happiness and tranquility among participants.
