Latvijas Nacionālā bibliotēka 2014


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.

Over the snowdrifts

LNB Building in winter 2010
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

Growing Up

LNB Building
Finally some part of the building could be seen. Can you see the red frames above the grey fence? :)
Comparing to the last photos of LNB Building, this one depicts a big step forward.

BTW, do not forget to check Webcam of National Library's building, which updates almost every second.

Through Protests

LNB building in March 2009
As you can see for the past 3 months the view of the most important building in Latvia is not changed.
If you compare this photo to the previous one, then you won't notice any difference, except removed graffiti from the fence.
But National Library is still under construction. Despite financial crisis and heavy critics is going on and on!

Knowledge is everything


This is the where Latvian National Library (LNB) will be build. There is no consensus of opinions about this building. Because this project can take a lot of money from national budget.
But really, does Latvia really need in so big and nice Library? Do people living in latvia read a lot of books? I think, books already are in past.
