Members of the Latvian parliament join the „Chain of Booklovers”
Members of the parliament and the Saeima staff joined the „Chain of Booklovers – the Path of Light” action which will take place on 18 January, 2014, and will serve as one of the main European Capital of Culture year opening events. By handing the books from one person to the next, everyone will take part in the journey of books from the old library building to the new one. This path of books will cross the river Daugava, symbolizing the fundamental values which have for many generations developed the core of our culture, and which are immortalized in books.
Holding hands for a common purpose in the 1989 Baltic road brought us independence. A common chain of booklovers will be a historic campaign that will acknowledge to the whole world our cultural values, preserving them and passing on.
More than 7000 participants, state and municipal institutions, companies and culture organizations have already registered for the action.
