Kadriorg reading corner was opened at the Literary Street Festival in Tallinn on Saturday.
Anu Aus, senior acting elder of Kesklinn, and Maarja Vaino, head of the Tallinn Literary Center, opened the reading corner at the same time as opening the fourth Literary Street Festival.
The reading corner is situated on the corners of Koidula and Faehlmanni. The first books were placed on the shelves as a gift from the city government.
Aus said: "I wish everyone the joy of reading in this pavilion, which is always open to everyone and where everyone is welcome to bring or borrow books."
The public space has been designed by architects Jaan Tiidemann and Jarmo Vaik.
The idea of creating a reading corner at the intersection of Koidula and Faehlmann was prepared by the district administration, the Tallinn Literature Center and the Kadriorg Society.
Koidula tänav is named after Lydia Emilie Florence Jannsen (1843-1886), a teacher, editor, writer and poet better known by her pen name Lydia Koidula. She is considered the founder of Estonian theater.
