According to the National Headquarters for Managing and Fighting the Coronavirus, as museums and cultural sites in Tehran Province, the book garden was also closed to the public as the province was in the high-risk “red” zone due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The cultural center, which is next to the National Library, will provide service to book lovers every day from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., even during national holidays.

It will welcome visitors with a series of new health and safety measures in place.

According to, the site’s primary intention is to create a permanent home for exhibiting books and to have an effect on society’s appreciation of reading and learning. With theater spaces, cinemas, auditoriums, cafés, and restaurants closed, a book garden is an excellent place for a day out away from the hustle and bustle of the capital.
