In 2019, the National Library of Latvia (NLL) celebrates its centenary. Just a year younger than Latvia, it was founded on 29 August 1919 as the State Library of Latvia. Threatened by the spiritual darkness of different powers and stationed at dozens of addresses, the library has experienced a colourful hundred years. That has hardened it, made it grow up and better itself.
