Librarian of Alexandria

Many have heard of the Library of Alexandria, one of the wonders of the ancient world. It was largely destroyed by fire in 48 A.D. and then gradually faded away into oblivion. It has however been resurrected in a modern format, and a new "Librarian of Alexandria" appointed, the first such appointment in 1600 years! You can read the CNN piece on it here, and do visit the library website.
