Aircraft and Train Library for Children: Çankırı Municipality has transformed two wagons and a locomotive, which were shredded with an Airbus A 300 type aircraft, which has completed its flight life, into a library to give children the habit of reading books.
The interior of the passenger plane, which was brought to Çankırı from Istanbul a few years ago with 5 trucks in pieces and converted into a library, was decorated so that children could use it comfortably. The library, which will meet all kinds of needs of children in this sense, will be opened in a few months.
