Bibliotheca Alexandrina (Alexander, Egypt) is one of the best modern (and ancient libraries in the world). You best recognize...
Opened in 2002 at a cost of $222 million; This modern wonder of the world is TAKING BACK it's rightful place as one of the greatest collections of books/information the world has ever seen.
I say, celebrate the wonderful libraries and societies of the great ancient civilizations; Rome; Greece; Eqypt; Turkey; China. Let us learn from our mistakes and work as one race, the human race, this time to bring human joy, medicine, and knowledge to the whole world. That is my dream.







Quote:
The Royal Library of Alexandria, or Ancient Library of Alexandria, in Alexandria, Egypt, was the largest and most significant great library of the ancient world. It flourished under the patronage of the Ptolemaic dynasty and functioned as a major center of scholarship from its construction in the 3rd century BC until the Roman conquest of Egypt in 30 BC. The library was conceived and opened either during the reign of Ptolemy I Soter (323–283 BC) or during the reign of his son Ptolemy II (283–246 BC).[1]

Plutarch (AD 46–120) wrote that during his visit to Alexandria in 48 BC Julius Caesar "accidentally" burned the library down when he set fire to his own ships to frustrate Achillas' attempt to limit his ability to communicate by sea.[2] After its destruction, scholars used a "daughter library" in a temple known as the Serapeum, located in another part of the city.

Intended both as a commemoration and an emulation of the original, the Bibliotheca Alexandrina was inaugurated in 2002 near the site of the old library.[3]

In 2004, a Polish-Egyptian excavation team announced that they had discovered the remains of the Library of Alexandria.[4]
