The official launch of the National Library of Israel renewal project took place in March 2011, in the presence of the President of Israel Shimon Peres, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar and Lord Rothschild.
The National Library’s Activity with the Education System
As part of its Renewal, the Library is opening its physical and virtual gates to the education system as well – pupils, teachers and programme developers. The National Library’s treasures will enrich and diversify the learning programmes in the fields of History, Judaism, Islam, Geography, Political Science and others.
