HÀ NỘI — Valuable documents are being displayed at an exhibition titled A Century Alongside The Nation’s History to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the National Library of Việt Nam.

Items include ancient books made from buông leaves of the Chăm people and a collection of Hán-Nôm books, which were written by hand in Nôm script (the ideographic Vietnamese script that was widely used between the 15th-19th century) and feature facts and information on geography, history, culture and education.

Documents are displayed across four main themes – the establishment and development of the library; products and services the library offers; valuable documents stored in the library; and the honourable awards granted to the library by the Government which include labour orders, first, second and third class; and independence order, first, second and third class.   

With more than 500 characteristic documents selected from more than 2.5 million, the exhibition will offer visitors an insight into the history of the library as well as the contributions it has made to the country over the last century.

The exhibition is open until December 17 at the National Library of Việt Nam, 31 Tràng Thi Street. — VNS
