Our library currently counts around 5,000 volumes in Greek and other languages (mainly French and English), including some editions from the 16th century, mainly published in Switzerland (Basel, Geneva, Lausanne), as well as historical documents. We participate in several temporary exhibitions organized by museums and other cultural institutions in Switzerland with books and other items from our collection (i.e. Museum of Art and Culture of Geneva in 2021, Historical Museum of Lausanne in 2023).
Currently, we are searching for an appropriate place for our library to function as a lending library. The next step will be the creation of a digital catalog of our titles, so that they are accessible to the public.
