Pope visits remodeled Apostolic Library

Catholic World News - December 20, 2010

On Saturday, December 18, Pope Benedict XVI visited the Apostolic Library, which reopened in September after an extensive 3-year remodeling.

The Pope blessed the new facilities, and toured the rooms, accompanied by Cardinal Raffaele Farina, the Vatican archivist and librarian. The library has been thoroughly modernized, the structures reinforced, and new features installed to protect the collection and comply with modern safety codes.
