As Many Sri Lankans, especially the youth who are interested in studying Japan, do not have easy access to literature on Japan. In this context, Embassy of Japan donated 500 books on Japanese literature and various subjects related to Japan to Colombo Public Library. This collection is arranged separately at the Special Reference section of the Library. Japanese Solidarity Association and Lanka Japan Friendship Society facilitated this corner by donating Book cupboards, reading tables and a computer. Inauguration ceremony of the Japanese Corner was held on 10th August 2016 under the patronage of HE Kenichi Suganuma and Mr. V.K.A. Anura, Municipal Commissioner.
