The Russian National Library received EUR30 thousand as a gift from Germany

The Russian National Library Today, Ulrich Schening, Consul General of Germany in St. Petersburg gave cheques for the total amount of EUR30 thousand to Vladimir Zaitsev, Director of the Russian National Library.

The two cheques, for EUR15 thousand each, for buying books this year and the next year, were given to the Russian National Library by the German Research Society. According to Vladimir Zaitsev, the German Professor Mauer from the German Research Society worked in the National Library last year. The professor paid attention to the fact that very few German reference books were available at the Russian National Library, and now the library received the money to buy these books.
