One of the very first photos in this blog, was the picture of a place, where New Library is going to be built.
Almost 7 years has been passed, and here it is, the new Latvian National Library aka Latvijas Nacionālā bibliotēka.
There are still some works going on, so it is not officially open yet.
Also, there are other photographs of LNB building taken from the same spot during the 7 years.
This photo of Latvian National Library during Staro Riga is selected in order to give you an opportunity to compare how LNB was looking in during Staro Riga 2008. Photo's source is Delfi. BTW, check the timeline of LNB Building since 2007.
One of long-term projects within this blog is watching of the Latvian National Library construction site. Check the timeline of LNB photos I took from the same position for the last 3 years. Still 2 years to go...
Latvijas Nacionālā bibliotēka (National Library of Latvia) was founded in 1919. It was opened in the former bank's building at Krisjana Barona and Elizabetes crossroads, which was built in 1910 Nowadays the premises and not enough and the library will be moved to the new building in Autumn of 2012. Check here for the latest photos of construction works and live webcam.
6 months passed since I posted the photo of the most interesting on-going building in Latvia. See the all time line of the LNB Building. Due all-winter-long abundant snowfalls, the snowdrifts are more than 1 meter high almost everywhere in Riga
Unfortunately, I didn't took a shot when the foundations of Latvian National Library were laid. But I still continue making shots from the same position as one year before. This picture was taken around begin of October 2008. Have a look how it was in November 2007 January 2008 March 2008 Or all pictures of LNB Building together.
