A public library in Salinas, California, opened its Korean collection last week.

Salinas Mayor Joe Gunter thanked the San Francisco Korean Consulate General for their help in the installation inside John Steinbeck Library Saturday.

About 400 books and 70 children’s books are in the collection, which expects to add Korean magazines, Korean films and K-pop in the future.

The opening celebration included traditional performances by Korean language school students from Monterey, taekwondo demonstrations and a concert of Korean pop hits from the 1970s and ’80s.

Korean collections are popping up in public libraries across the country, from Millbrae to Queens, some supported by the Korean government in hopes of providing resources for locals to learn more about Korean literature and history.
