One of the central events on January 18, when the European Capital of Culture year was unveiled in Riga, was the Chain of Booklovers - a symbolic living chain in which inhabitants and visitors of Riga passed books down from the old building of the National Library of Latvia to the new one - the Castle of Light. The event lasted almost five hours and despite the cold weather people were dancing, enjoying themselves and enthusiastically passing down the books from hand to hand until they reached their new home.
