FRIENDS of Slovakia initiated the instalment of a library dedicated to contemporary Slovak literature, which took place on June 17 at the Slovak Embassy in Washington, DC. The Friends of Slovakia Library will present a yearly collection devoted to the work of a different Slovak publishing house. Materials in the Library will be available both via a lending program as well as for review at the embassy.

The unveiling of the library hosted an academic discussion entitled Publishing in Slovakia: Challenges for Today, by Koloman Kertesz Bagala, publisher of this year's contribution to the library at the Library of Congress. Later that day, Bagala attended an unveiling ceremony of select contributions at the Slovak Embassy.

"The Friends of Slovakia Library is an important development for Friends of Slovakia, as we work to enhance Slovak-American relations. The library will be a repository of contemporary Slovak literature and ideas and thus help expand American understanding of current Slovak culture," said Jan Erik Surotchak, Chairman of Friends of Slovakia.
