A new national library for the People of the Book

Fears that the replacing of books, newspapers and magazines by digital publishing will make libraries obsolete were obviated on Monday by the large turnout of local and foreign media invited to a press conference at the Jewish National and Hebrew University Library in Jerusalem.

The press conference was called in advance of the laying of the cornerstone next Tuesday for the new $200 million National Library, which will stand opposite the Knesset. Scheduled for completion towards the end of 2019, the state of the art complex will open to the public in 2020.
