The National Library of Latvia is not just a book depository; it is a multi-functional centre, where users are able to find the information they need, learn new things, visit exhibits, hold conferences and seminars, and spend their free time in a practical and creative way. We believe that the National Library of Latvia - our Castle of Light will become the symbol of education and culture in Latvia – and perhaps even the symbol of Latvia all over the world – for many generations to come.

Our National Library needs the support of the entire community. That is why we invite all citizens and businesses to donate to the Library. Each donor’s name will be immortalized in the new Castle of Light.
