 Principles

​In accordance with The National Library Law of 2007 (in Hebrew), the Library’s primary goals are to collect, preserve, cultivate, and endow the treasures of knowledge, heritage, and culture in general, with respect to the State of Israel and the Jewish people in particular.

 

The National Library is committed to the active dissemination of knowledge and to the cultivation of an educated, enlightened, and tolerant society, by means of a variety of educational and cultural activities. The Library aspires to serve as wide a range of audiences as possible, in Israel and beyond. The Library’s doors are open to any potential user, student or not, for the purpose of research or otherwise, and provides visitors with expert guidance to help navigate the abundance of information. 
The Master Plan for Renewal 2010-2016 calls for the construction of a new Library building that will enable the Library to carry out its long-term goals.
 
With respect to the aforementioned, the Israeli Government, in its meeting held on February 21, 2010, declared Cabinet Decision No. 1414:

 “To support and promote the enterprise called "The Renewal of the National Library of Israel ", under which a new home will be built for the National Library in "Kiryat Ha’Leom", Jerusalem, with the recognition of the important role of the National Library in the collection, conservation, cultivation and endowment of knowledge, heritage and culture in general, with respect to Israel and the Jewish people in particular.
 
 
The new National Library building will allow the Library to fulfill its goals and functions in accordance with the National Library Law of 2007, and will allow the public in Israel and abroad proper and reasonable access to library collections through, among other things, advanced technological means.
