On Tuesday 20 June four music librarians answered the listener’s questions about music libraries in Latvian Radio's Russian-speaking Channel 4. It was the journalist Tatjana Myslevich who had invited Marina Mihaileca from the National Library of Latvia, Alla Semenyuk from Russian State Library, Marina Demina and Besa Spahiu from The Music and Theatre Library in Sweden.
Latvia / Latvija
Have you registered for the IAML congress in Riga yet? It is only one month away, from June 18-22, 2017.
On behalf of IAML I would like to congratulate our colleagues from Latvia on the official inauguration of the fantastic new building "Castle of Light", which now hosts the National Library of Latvia in Riga! I have understood that the festivities have been going on all week and will culminate in a spectacular public event tonight - Salasīšanās" (a word with two meanings: gathering and reading). Enjoy your evening! I hope you will be very happy in your new home!
All best wishes for 2014 to our Latvian Colleagues!:
