ABLV Charitable Foundation Greets "the Bearers of Light"
May 12, 2014
The Foundation presents an award to the Latvia’s five most selfless and active parish librarians.
This year for the first time, ABLV Charitable Foundation took part in an event organised by the Public Benefit Organisation “Latvian National Library Support Society”: “Parish Librarian – Bearer of Light” which celebrates Latvia’s librarians. The Foundation provided an award for each winner in the form of the art album “Without Walls” in which all of the works from the ABLV Bank collection for the nascent Contemporary Art Museum are collated.
This competition organised by the “Latvian National Library Support Society” was taking place for the eighth time. This year too, an award was presented to the most diligent and selfless librarians from every region of Latvia: Kurzeme, Latgale, Vidzeme, Zemgale and Rīga region. Readers wrote in about their librarians, in order to express their gratitude and appreciation of their work. “Parish Librarian – Bearer of Light” is a readers’ award and, at the same time, recognition of their librarian.
We are honoured to have this opportunity to be one of the main supporters of this event, presenting a valuable award to the “Bearers of Light” for their huge contribution and tireless initiative in encouraging cultural life and the reading of books in their parish.
