Campaign "Gaismas ceļš" - chain of book friends
The symbolic campaign of people in which books from the old building of the National Library of Latvia (K. Barona Street 14) will be brought to the new modern building on the other bank of the River Daugava hand to hand will be one of the opening events of 2014.
The new building of the National Library of Latvia (Mūkusalas Street 3) is an important and new object of cultural infrastructure. Joining of hands for one purpose in the Baltic Way in 1989 brought independence. The joint chain of book friends will be a symbolic joining of hands and will confirm the value system in Riga and Latvia. Every inhabitant of Riga, Latvia and guests of Riga are invited to join hands for cultural values, their preservation and transfer to the next generations.
