Thailand: New Bangkok City Library Will Stay Open 24 Hours a Day
From Coconuts Bangkok:
Good news for all the bookworms who drop thousands of baht every time they step into Asia Books. Bangkok is preparing to launch a new kind of city library, a reading space that will stay open 24 hours a day and have ridiculously cheap membership costs.
The library is expected to open to the public by the end of this year. Entry is free, but if you’d like to borrow books, an annual membership costs THB25 [approx $.70/USD] for adult and THB5-15 for children.
