The Minister of Culture, Dr. Ghattas Khoury visited the new headquarters of the Lebanese National Library in Sanayeh, in the presence of the Advisor to the First Lady, Mrs. Claudine Aoun Roukoz, the Manager of the Revival Project of the National Library, Mr. Gerard Khajerian, and the Project Executive Director, Mrs. Gelnare Atoui Saad.

After an inspection tour of the completed sections intended for the management of the Library, and the books and periodicals stores, as well as the reading rooms, the Minister considered this day as a blessed one because of his first visit to one of the Lebanese cultural monuments. He then thanked the State of Qatar, the main donor of the Revival Project of the National Library for the restoration and expansion of the building. He said: “We hope that the National Library will give a new impetus to culture in Lebanon and will be the source of a bright future, especially that cultural promotion is always equivalent to economic growth.”
