Greetings on 100th anniversary of All-Russia State Library for Foreign Literature

April 6, 2022

Vladimir Putin congratulated current staff and retired employees of the All-Russia State Library for Foreign Literature on its 100th anniversary.

The message reads, in part:

“One of the country’s largest libraries was founded at the initiative of Margarita Rudomino and her supporters, creative and dedicated people and true enthusiasts. Over the years, largely due to their immensely rich legacy and well-established traditions of selfless and constructive work, the famous Library for Foreign Literature became a widely recognised cultural, educational and research centre, as well as a truly warm and hospitable home for a wide circle of readers.

It is important that the current staff fulfils its mission in a worthy manner, facilitates the development of the national book-publishing and library sector and implements diverse and always interesting projects. I would like to specially note your substantial contribution to strengthening international cultural and humanitarian cooperation, as well as trust and mutual understanding among people.”
