As Saint Lucia and the Republic of Korea advance their bilateral relations, the island was recently the recipient of a donation of books on Korean history and culture.

During a short presentation on Thursday 11th July 23, 2013 at the Ministry of External Affairs, the books were donated for use by the people of Saint Lucia and it is expected that this gesture will bridge the cultural and social gaps between the two countries.

Ms. Brenda Paul, Director of the Central Library conveyed gratitude on behalf of the users of the Central Library for the latest addition to their existing complement of books. Further, it is expected that the books will help the Saint Lucian public gain a better understanding about the history and culture of the Republic of Korea.

Mr. Sang Hoon Lee, Second Secretary from the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Trinidad and Tobago expressed his delight to be part of this educational and cultural drive which seeks to draw two distant lands even closer.

A collection of these books were also donated to the Hunter J Francois Library of the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College.
