World’s largest floating library docked at Aqaba port

Aqaba, Jan. 25 (Petra) — The world’s largest floating library, Logos Hope, docked at Aqaba port on Wednesday, laden with 5,000 books on various scientific, literary, and intellectual topics.

The ship will open its doors on January 26, selling books at low prices and giving away souvenirs such as bags, cups, pens, medals, and bracelets.

The 132-meter ship, managed by a German non-profit organization, aims to spread “knowledge and hope” in each port it visits. It chose Port Said as its first destination in the new year, followed by Aqaba.

The ship visited more than 480 ports in 150 countries worldwide, receiving some 49 million book enthusiasts over 13 years, with a mission to provide a culturally rich experience and foster intercultural connections.
