The Floating Library - Epos, Norway
For anyone looking to experience a library with a cultural impact, look no further than Epos, the book boat in Norway. This floating library stemmed from the need to provide culture to remote areas throughout the country. Due to the Norwegian landscape, many of its citizens were unable to access books without having to travel many miles to one of the bigger towns or cities. Hence, Epos was born. This book boat travels along the coast, bringing the joy of reading to even the most isolated of individuals.
A visit to this unique library does more than fulfil the need for adventure, it also helps to support a community-driven program. Climb aboard the Epos, to experience what children and adults alike find so wonderful about this travelling book collection. If you visit Norway in summer, the Epos operates as a tourist boat, offering its passengers the chance to read-up about their destination while they set sail.
