of Greece (NLG) will be fully op­er­a­tional after its re­search depart­ment opens to the pub­lic to­day, along with its manuscripts, records, mag­a­zines and lend­ing de­part­ments. ‘With­out a na­tional li­brary it is point­less to talk about a na­tional cul­ture, be­cause it is here that the mem­ory of a na­tion is gath­ered and pre­served,’ said the head of the NLG’s su­per­vi­sory coun­cil, Stavros Zoum­boulakis.
