On 7 July, the final working day of his presidency, President of Latvia Egils Levits visited the National Library of Latvia (NLL), where his inauguration took place in 2019, and delivered a message to the NLL Director Andris Vilks 'About the Latvian Language'.
'The National Library of Latvia is much more than a library. It is the core of the Latvian nation, because it is here that the knowledge and values that make up the Latvian nation are stored. The National Library of Latvia is not just a building. It is a representation of who we Latvians are and how we see the world. This point of view is different for every nation,' says E. Levits.
President of Latvia Egils Levits started his presidency (inauguration) in the National Library of Latvia and also chose it as one of the symbolic, significant places for Latvia to visit on the last day of his presidency.
