Kim Yeong-su Library in Jejubuk Elementary School boasts a more than 100-year history! Small rooms, where reading and discussion are available, and a wooden office with an open bookshelf where writing blooms like flowers in minds of people who visit. During daytime in the semester, only students can use it, but after 5 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends, anyone can visit. Meanwhile, there are a number of small, private book spaces making up for the lack of public libraries. Pureun Yeolmae Library in Jocheon-eup and Pongnang Library in Donghong-dong, Seogwipo, hold family concerts, movie showings, and book concerts. Poems of children in the poetry-writing classes are published as a collection of poetry. In addition, “Books’ Autumn Picnic,” a Jeju book festival, exudes the thick smell of books through various lectures, performances, experiences, and book exchange events.
