The Luang Prabang Library

19 03 2016

I happened to stumble upon the Luang Prabang Library situated on the main street in central Luang Prabang.  It looked very inviting and since I had time to kill before lunch, decided to check it out.

As I said, it looked very inviting.

As you can guess from the signs, it is more or less an English-language library with many books in English.  The friendly staff spoke English and it was occupied by other English speaking visitors.  I sat for about half an hour browsing through guide books on Laos reading mostly about eating out in Luang Prabang.

As I was leaving, I noticed this program and decided to participate.

Next to the library is a shop and a book exchange section
