#Stand with Ukraine: National Library of Latvia

Please donate to save Ukraine’s cultural heritage!

The National Library of Latvia (NLL) is responding to an international initiative to provide support in rescuing the collections of Ukrainian archives, museums and libraries.

A Cultural Heritage Rescue Centre has been established at Lviv Polytechnic National University’s Scientific and Technical Library. Guardians of Ukraine’s cultural heritage are working there to ensure the preservation of cultural heritage treasures – packing and protecting the collections of Ukrainian archives, museums and libraries and delivering them to a safe place. They are also providing first aid to war casualties.

What our Ukrainian colleagues lack most are materials to use in the packaging and processing of the treasures. Therefore, the NLL and its employees call on the entire Latvian cultural heritage community – both professionals and like-minded people – to donate such materials. Let us remember that cultural heritage is shared by all humankind, and we all have the responsibility to help protect and preserve it for future generations.
