Following on from the success of Hollywood librarian news is coming through that an amercan film crew are making a documentary about Latvian libraries. The article says of the film:-
The film is being shot for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which plans to show the film to librarians and library administrators from many countries where similar projects could be implemented.
"Tresais teva dels" is the foundation's pilot project in Europe; before that, the foundation supported the development of libraries in North and South Americas.
