Head of Egyptian National Library and Archives Hisham Azmi took part in a conference organized by International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA).
Azmi praised the attention paid by the Egyptian state to people with special needs, stressing the interest of the national library in providing knowledge to people with special needs with the latest technology and reading programs for the blind and visually impaired.
Azmi stressed that the national library seeks to achieve the concept of cultural justice through an ambitious plan to expand beyond the borders of Greater Cairo by establishing new headquarters for the national library in northern Egypt, the Red Sea Governorate and Upper Egypt.
It is worth mentioning that the national library made sure to provide a number of seminars and lectures and not only printed materials for people with special needs in the special hall for the blinds.
The national library is co-organizing the conference in cooperation with the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, the Egyptian Ministry of Communications and Information Technology and the Japan International Cooperation Authority (JICA).
