The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has held a meeting on its Bangkok City Library project at Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall in Phra Nakhon district.
The meeting was chaired by Bangkok Deputy Governor Amorn Kitchawengkul and aimed to gather feedback from all stakeholders, including youngsters, students, officials and residents of Phra Nakhon district.
Mr. Amorn said Bangkok was chosen by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as the World Book Capital of 2013. The title is bestowed to countries with outstanding efforts to promote reading and dedication to the book industry.
The Bangkok City Library project is one of nine plans that the BMA presented to UNESCO. The new facility will serve as another learning center equipped with comprehensive, state-of-the-art learning materials and technologies. Bangkok City Library is expected to pave the wave for the capital to become a metropolis of learning.
Ideas and suggestions of the stakeholders participating in the meeting will be incorporated in the management of the new library. The Bangkok Deputy Governor stressed that the project serves the public’s interests. He added the meeting was the first step of the library’s foundation-laying process.
Bangkok City Library will be inaugurated in early 2017.
