The Can Tho City Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism announced on Wednesday that a 2,500-square-meter addition will be made to its library in early 2023 at a cost of around VND150 billion (US$6.4 million).

The addition to the Can Tho City Library will built on its current site next to the municipal Department of Foreign Affairs at the intersection of Hoa Binh and Ngo Gia Tu Streets in Tan An Ward, Ninh Kieu District.

The library’s total area, including the extension, will be around 2,500 square meters, of which the original area is 1,855 square meters and the extension will be 578 square meters.

The renovation plan includes one basement, seven functional stories, and one technical floor. 

Its main components include an event hall, a cultural event space, a book display, an optional book storage block, and a document storage block.

The library will be constructed to fulfill the research, work, study, and entertainment needs of all citizens within and outside of the city, as well as to enrich the spiritual lives of Can Tho residents.

The Can Tho City Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism is the investor.

Construction will begin in early 2023 and will be finished by 2025.
