    After more than four years of renovations, the old Seoul City Hall building is set to reopen as Seoul Metropolitan Library.

    Opening on October 26, the new library will provide a comfortable reading space for citizens and promote active reading culture. With almost 9,500 square meters of floor space over seven floors, the library expects to house a total of 200,000 books by December of this year, as well as audiovisual materials, digital collections, and Braille books. Visitors can find foreign-language books too, as well as computer terminals catering to foreign bibliophiles.
