How the Russian Library was saved

The Jerusalem Post - Israel - Jerusalem's Russian Library has always had to fight for its right to exist. Last week, it raged its fiercest battle yet, culminating in a promise from the municipality to move it to the Clal Building. After 15 years at the Zuckerman building on Rehov Ha'or behind the Central Bus Station, by September 1 the building stood to be vacated to make way for its new owners. And though the city had almost a year to plan the move, there was still no ready location into which the collection could be transferred and the library resume its activities.
