10-02-2017 15:00

The world’s first-ever ice library is based in Russia. It is made from blocks of ice. It is no ordinary library. People from across the globe have written their hopes and dreams online and people have cut these into the ice.

The organizer says that the ice library is an interesting idea to understand how dreams can be gathered from all over the world. The ice contains more than 1,000 short phrases in different languages, forming a labyrinth.

One of the visitors says that he hopes that everyone in the world will always have good health.  Although not all dreams come true, there are some that do, and this library could be home to some of those hopes and dreams.

Difficult words: ordinary (usual), gather (collect, put together), labyrinth (a large, complex maze).
