World's first ice library launched in Baikalsk
In Russia, the world's strangest library has opened in the city of Baikalsk. Not a single piece of paper can be found inside. Instead, all books are made from ice. The library consists of 420 "books", which contain etchings of more than 1,000 phrases. Phrases represent the wishes sent by people from around the world. Wishes are in various languages including English, Chinese, Korean and Russian. The library near Lake Baikal is expected to stand until April, before it melts in the sun.
