The 28th Minsk International Book Fair (MIBF) began its work on February 18.
At the book festival, the National Library of Belarus presented to the viewer the exhibition “New House – New Perspectives. 2006–2021 Publishing Projects". The exhibition is timed to the 15th anniversary of the relocation of the Library to a modern building.
