Free Program On Mongolia At Coos Bay Library

The “Armchair Film Adventure” series at Coos Bay Library
continues on Tuesday, July 9th at 2pm in the Myrtlewood Room. “MONGOLIA – Land of the Nomads” is this month’s destination.
Protected by endless deserts and untouched landscapes, an
exotic and fascinating civilization has managed to survive right up to the present day. Mongolia, the land of the nomads in central Asia is a once legendary and feared realm that is also full of natural beauty.

Today’s capital of Ulaanbaatar, or Red Corner, was some centuries ago
nothing more than a small nomad settlement but now around a million
people live there, one third of the country’s population.
The name Genghis Khan is synonymous with Mongolia. Under the
leadership of this legendary monarch, the Mongols established the
largest empire in history, a realm that extended across large areas of Asia, possessed more than a hundred million subjects and created a new high season of culture. About an hour from Ulaanbaatar in Tov Province is the calm and tranquil, Manzushir, a charming area that is totally different from the densely populated metropolis.

Mongolia is a land of nomads, wonderful wilderness, unspoiled
landscapes, centuries old traditions as well as fascinating cultural
treasures and sanctuaries. Everyone is welcome at this program
sponsored by The Friends of the Coos Bay Library. No admission
is charged and refreshments will be served. Call 269-1101 for
further information on this program.
