Bases for dis­tri­bu­tion of sci­en­tific and tech­no­log­i­cal knowl­edge for the work­ing peo­ple are mush­room­ing in ci­ties and coun­ties of the Demo­cratic Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of Korea which strives to make all the peo­ple well versed in sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy.

Mi­rae (fu­ture) li­brary of the type was built in the seat of Kwak­san County, North Phy­on­gan Prov­ince, and be­gan its ser­vice last Jan­uary.

Cov­er­ing a to­tal floor space of over 1 400 m², the three-storeyed li­brary has e-read­ing rooms which give every­body ac­cess to on-line in­for­ma­tion about the lat­est sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy and their achieve­ments, on-line lec­ture rooms and halls for read­ing books, mag­a­zines and news­pa­pers.

It is also fur­nished with rooms for school­child­ren to learn com­put­ers.

It pro­vides var­i­ous kinds of ser­vices ei­ther in elec­tronic form or through net­works at the re­quest of in­di­vid­u­als, or­gans and en­ter­prises. All the ser­vices are free of charge. Since its open­ing the li­brary is

over­flow­ing with the work­ing peo­ple and school­child­ren.

Among them are work­ers de­vour­ing sci­en­tific and tech­ni­cal ma­te­ri­als for the mod­ern­iza­tion of pro­duc­tion pro­cesses, be­ing un­aware of the pas­sage of the time, and young stu­dents and pupils fol­low­ing up what they have learnt at school or prac­tis­ing their com­puter skills.

Of­fi­cials and tech­ni­cians from the Kwak­san Food­stuff Fac­tory say in uni­son that the li­brary was a great help for them in has­ten­ing the mod­ern­iza­tion of the pro­duc­tion lines and praise it as a store­house of tech­ni­cal in­for­ma­tion and knowl­edge help­ful for the set­tle­ment of sci­en­tific and tech­ni­cal prob­lems.

Work­ing peo­ple in the county fre­quent the Mi­rae Li­brary with a mind to ac­quire the high stan­dard of sci­en­tific and tech­ni­cal knowl­edge as re­quired by the era of knowl­edge-based econ­omy and con­trib­ute to the build­ing of a thriv­ing coun­try.
