On the occasion of the Bicentennial of the Greek Revolution, the National Library of Greece is introducing a new series of educational programs entitled Issue No. 1821. Print media excerpts of that time, rare documents and manuscripts from the special collections of the National Library of Greece will be used creatively in order to highlight and investigate the Greek Revolution of 1821.
The Issue No. 1821 educational programs, developed for the Greek Libraries Network, will take place between March 2021 and December 2021. Children across Greece are invited to participate in their local Library workshops which were inspired by the archival material of the National Library of Greece.
Freedom is a timeless value. Knowledge of history is essential to achieve and maintain freedom. Let this anniversary be the opportunity, for both children and adults, to search for historical sources, study more thoroughly and gain a deeper understanding of our national identity.
The educational programs are coordinated via the official website of the Greek Libraries Network https://network.nlg.gr/
