A book nook is a quiet place where you enjoy books. It can be your favourite spot in school, a comfy corner at home, or a library. Libraries in our neighbourhood are usually filled with colourful sofas, computers among hundreds of books. What about an ancient library?
The oldest library in the world is located in Saint Catherine’s Monastery, at the foot of the Mount Sinai, Egypt. The library was built between 548 and 565, and is still operating now! It is home to some of the oldest copies of books and manuscripts that cannot be found anywhere else. To preserve the collection, scientists are trying to digitalise the manuscripts in the library. People can now read some of the works from the oldest library in the world online!
