Alexandria Library Exhibition
"An exhibition on the Ancient Library of Egypt together with its modern equivalent has opened at the City Art Centre. The exhibition, Bibliotheca Alexandrina, runs until September 11 and looks at the ancient library at Alexandria, which housed an acclaimed collection of several hundred thousand scrolls. It also features details of Egypt's new Bibliotheca Alexandrina library, which is dedicated to recapturing the original building's spirit". This is the full feature from The Scotsman website. The item assumes local knowledge - the City Art Centre is in Edinburgh, Scotland.
