An exhibition of books on theatre and other findings from the archives of Koraes Public Library of Chios.
The Friends of Koraes Library have organises an exhibition of books and other findings from the Koraes archive on theatre, in the context of the 30ths Meeting of the Aegean Theatre Groups. The exhibition opened on Sunday October 30th, 2018 at the Library and it will be open to visitors through the autumn. Thus the Library, a pillar of knowledge, is actively participating in this celebration of theatre that is taking place in our island.
This is an exciting exhibition of old editions of ancient writers (some dating back to 1524 and unique in Europe), the works of local intellectual Leon Allatios, first translations in modern greek and many more. It also includes old programmes from theatrical performances.
It becomes apparent that the rich archives of Koraes library still keep many secrets that have to be explored by visitors, readers and researchers.
