Opened in 2001, the CKS Library aims to promote a culture of reading in the community and provide resources for research and education to teachers, students, scholars and the public about Cambodia and the Mekong region.

It is our pleasure to invite younger readers to participate in CKS’ library contest “Read More, Know More.”
