The Library is safe
07 February 2011
In the earlier statement I described the events in Egypt and reassured our friends about the safety of the Library and all our staff. As the protests continued, I am happy to report that opponents and supporters joined hands in protecting the library, and I am providing
pictures and video on the website.
The demonstrations were large and peaceful (video), and at prayer times, people prayed in front of the library.
