New North Korean Sci-Tech Library officially opens after long delay

Hamhung project appeared nearing completion in 2016 before state media coverage picked up this year

An opening ceremony was held Sunday for a new science and technology library in the North Korean city of Hamhung, according to state media – over two years after the project first appeared to be nearing completion.

The South Hamgyong Sci-Tech Library, located in the east-coast city’s center, is understood to be the first such large-scale facility outside of Pyongyang, which is home to the country’s biggest Sci-Tech center.
