Library of Alexandria
Is a major library and cultural center located on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea in the Egyptian city of Alexandria.
The idea of reviving the old library dates back to 1974, when a committee set up by Alexandria University selected a plot of land for its new library.
Construction work began in 1995 and, after some US$220 million had been spent, the complex was officially inaugurated on 16 October 2002.
In 2010, the library received a donation of 500,000 books from the
“Bibliothèque Nationale de France”. This gift makes it the sixth-largest
Francophone library in the world.
