The Warsaw University Library on Dobra Street has added 12,000 more books to their bookshelves thanks to a generous contribution from the newly opened Austrian Forum of Culture center in Warsaw.

Since most of the books are in German, students and researchers of the German language have an extra advantage to explore original versions of books written by great Austrian researchers, thinkers, and writers. The new Austrian library located on the third floor of the Warsaw University Library was officially opened Sept. 13 in the presence of numerous dignitaries, including the rector of the university, Prof. Piotr Węgleński; the director of the Warsaw University Library, Dr. Henryk Hollender; the director of the Austrian Forum of Culture, Andreas Stadle; as well as the president of the BPH PBK bank, Józef Wancer. The bank was the main sponsor of the event.

Later the same day, the Austrian Forum of Culture located on Próżna Street was also officially launched. Present at the opening ceremony was the minister of culture, Waldemar D±browski; the secretary general at Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Johannes Kyrle; and a representative from the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Austrian Forum of Culture has lined up a series of cultural events, including musical and theater performances and lectures spread across the country in a spirited campaign to make their presence felt, which will last throughout the year. A photo exhibition is currently on display in their hall, which is opened to the general public.
