On September 15, in a formal setting, the postage stamp block "100 years of the Belarussian National Library" was cancelled as a part of festivities honouring the milestone of the country's major library.
In the presence of representatives from various ministries and departments, the media, and library staff, the cancellation procedure was carried out by Anatoli Markevich, the minister for culture of Belarus, Anna Riabova, the deputy minister for communications and information technology of Belarus, and Aksana Knizhnikava, the director general of the Belarussian National Library.
The Belarussian National Library's fruitful collaboration with the Belarussian Post Office has become a good tradition. Around 30 postal projects featuring the Belarussian National Library's image have been introduced into postal circulation. The circulation of the postage stamp block "100 years of the Belarussian National Library" is limited to 15,000 copies, with an additional 7,000 postage stamp blocks available without perforation. Marina Vitkovskaya designed them.
The core tenets of our nation's development are reflected in the brightly coloured national allegiance found on Belarussian postage stamps. These small works of art depict notable occasions in Belarusian history and culture.
