The Seoul Metropolitan Library will host the “Exhibition of Books Donated by the French Cultural Center,” in cooperation with the French Cultural Center in Korea, to introduce French culture to the Korean people.
The exhibition will be held at the special exhibition hall on the first floor of the Seoul Metropolitan Library from September 16 to October 5. About 500 French books that were donated in honor of the opening of the Seoul Metropolitan Library in 2012 as well as about 90 newly donated books will be showcased at the exhibition.
On September 18, the Seoul Metropolitan Library and the French Cultural Center in Korea will sign an MOU on the establishment of a collaborative network for the development of the cultural industry, the globalization of culture, and the promotion of the mutual development of the two institutions.
Through this MOU, the French Cultural Center in Korea will make an annual donation of French books, such as the ones showcased at this exhibition, in an effort to expand the Korean people’s understanding of France and French culture.
