The Egyptian Ministry of Tourism & Antiquities will be working on a smaller-scale renovation of the Egyptian Museum’s library.
The Minister of Tourism & Antiquities, Khaled el-Enany toured the library to determine its current state in preparation for the start of the project.
The project will see that the library be a space for rare books; Egyptology books and encyclopaedias on ancient Egypt
Enany took a tour of the various halls of the library on the ground and upper floors and instructed the project to begin.
The library is considered one of the oldest, dedicated to the civilization of ancient Egypt. The development project aims to transform it into a museum and library for books on Egyptology, providing a reading room for intellects and VIP visitors.
Other books and scientific periodicals will be transferred to the Grand Egyptian Museum, where researchers and scholars can make use of them.
Not only will it be a place for specific books, but the whole space will also be revamped. From the lighting to the wooden shelves, and down to the decor of old telephones and library signs, the library will be as good as new.
