On June 21st–23rd at the Library of Congress (Washington) take place the meetings of participants of the World Digital Library (WDL), where the National Library of Belarus is represented by its director R.S. Motulsky.


In 2009 the National Library of Belarus signed the joining agreement with the WDL, and in March 2010 – the Charter of the WDL. Thus the National Library of Belarus became a full partner of the World Digital Library.

The program of the meetings provides for the handing over of books within the framework of the international project “Belarus Today”. The initiators of the project are the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Belarus and the Ministry of Information of the Republic of Belarus, with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Belarus.

The purpose of the project is to promote a positive image of the Republic of Belarus in the world arena and to popularize our country abroad. Within the framework of the project, each year collections of the best editions – winners of international and national book contests are to be handed over to five biggest libraries. That will undoubtedly promote the interest of foreign audience in the culture and the values of Belarus.

The first stage of this project is the handing over of 100 books to the Library of Congress including the best fiction, research and popular scientific literature, reference books, encyclopedias, and also art editions and photo albums.
