Israel - New National Library

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with Lord Jacob Rothschild and other members of the Rothschild family Sunday and thanked them for their pledge to donate more than $150 million for the building of a new National Library. 

Prime Minister Netanyahu said that, "Establishing a new National Library is an important part of our comprehensive plan to preserve Jewish heritage sites in Israel and strengthen our nation's heritage among the younger generation and future generations.”   

The National Library is currently located in the Givat Ram campus of Hebrew University. It is currently housed in a relatively old building with outdated infrastructure and cannot offer its visitors services on par with many other modern national libraries. The new library will be furnished and equipped with advanced digital technology and will include large storage spaces and innovative  display areas. (INN)
