The Revival of the Ancient Library of Alexandria - Objectives


The revival of the Ancient Library of Alexandria Project aims at building a universal modern public library to be a center of culture, science and academic research.

The library is to provide both the national and international communities of scholars and researchers with unique collections and facilities focusing on Alexandrian, Egyptian, ancient and medieval civilizations as well as on contemporary disciplines. The Library will also have valuable collections of science and technology resource materials to help the socio-economic and cultural development studies on Egypt and the region.

Bibliotheca Alexandria will sponsor intensive studies on the historical, and contemporary cultural heritage of the region.
