The Lebanese National Library is a renovation project led by Erga Group as an architectural consultant in Lebanon.
After 20 years of renovation, in 2018, Beirut’s treasure, the Lebanese National Library opened its doors, having them shut during the Lebanese civil war. The existing building was built in 1907. The new library building is a cultural center, it has an auditorium, many multipurpose rooms for workshops, conferences, and exhibitions, and a big reading hall for the public.
The construction and rehabilitation of The National Library Project became possible with the help of the European Commission and the generosity of His Royal Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Emir of the State of Qatar.
