Baaqline, Chouf district

Baaqline National Library occupies a historic building that goes back to 1897, known then as "Baakleen Saray", comprising a court, a prison, and a post of the gendarmerie. Upon the initiative of Walid Jumblatt in 1987, the building was restored and furnished to assume the role of a public library, which was equipped with various volumes, reference books, periodicals, and necessary equipment run by a well-trained and experienced staff. Upon his request, the library was annexed to the Ministry of Culture under the Council of Ministers Resolution, and thus became a public establishment.
