Library of Alexandria - Bibliotheca

The New Library of Alexandria, the New Bibliotheca ‎Alexandrina, is dedicated to recapture the spirit of ‎openness and scholarship of the original Bibliotheca ‎Alexandrina. It is much more than a library.‎ The Revival of the Ancient Library of Alexandria:‎ At the meeting point of the three continents, Asia, ‎Africa and Europe, Egypt has been the cradle of ‎civilizations since ancient times. The ancient city of ‎Alexandria was at the beginning of the third century ‎B.C. the birthplace of the great plan to build a library: ‎the Bibliotheca Alexandria. But a fire, which ravaged ‎Alexandria, destroyed the library, this vast storehouse ‎of learning. The Egyptian Government, in co-operation ‎with UNESCO, has decided to resurrect the old dream ‎to endow this part of the world with an important focal ‎point for culture, education and science.‎
