拉脫維亞國家圖書館擁有法律藏書與全國目錄,乃全國圖書館發展中心。但現在的國家圖書館分散在六處,無一足以堪符國家圖書館之專門需求標準,尤以技術服務最為落後。有鑑及此,嶄新的國家圖書館已於 2008年開工,預計 2013 年底完工。新館由享譽國際的本國出生美國籍建築師薄歌特規劃設計,新館外觀懾人眼目,功能特佳,具有三大特色,此即:便捷、光亮、及寬敞。舊館為密閉架式,僅供永久典藏書籍之用。現在新館較有彈性,予人便捷,人人可自由取閱。 “光之堡壘” 隱喻新館在建築上的技術突破,此即藏書遠離陽光,但館員與讀者盡可沐浴光中,陽光乃薄歌特偏愛的建材之一。陽光透過館舍的前院,分射到館內每一讀者。新館空間舒適寛敞,可舉辦下列各項活動,即大小型展覽、影片欣賞、新書發表、作者演講,以及各種不同的研討會、工作坊、集會等。

National Library is the largest library of the Republic of Latvia – a universal research library, which serves as the legal deposit library, maintains national bibliography and serves as the central hub of library development in the state level. Yet nowadays Latvia is the last remaining European country without a purpose-built national library building. Currently The National Library of Latvia is located in six separate buildings, none of which are suited to the specific needs of a national library and all of them being in a very poor technical state.
The construction works of the new building of the National Library of Latvia (The Castle of Light) were started in 2008 and by the end of 2013 the construction of the new building is expected to be completed.
The architect of the National library project – internationally acclaimed Latvian born American architect Gunnar Birkerts has a deep understanding of the essence of a library, its tasks and structure. He has created an expressive form for a well functioning body.
The key characteristics of the new building of the National Library of Latvia (Castle of Light or Glass Mountain) are FLEXIBILITY, LIGHT and PLACE. National libraries initially were closed repositories, intended only for eternal preservation of physical materials. Now national libraries are becoming flexible and freely accessible to everyone. Castle of Light is a literary metaphor, familiar to the whole Latvian nation. Furthermore it involves the most direct connection of the metaphoric meaning to the technical demands of the library. Books should be isolated from sunlight, but readers and staff should have daylight whenever possible. Light is one of the favourite “raw materials” of the Gunnar Birkerts, and atrium is a tool for the daylight spreading to everyone in the library. A library is a place where people meet. The open, communicative philosophy of libraries of the recent decades has been emphasized in their new constructions. In new circumstances these libraries take on new dimensions.
The new building of the library will provide a comfortable space for study and research, as well as qualitative remote services and digital collections. As the aim of the National Digital Library is ensuring availability of digitised Latvian cultural and historic heritage, it gives access to full text resources on history, geography, economy and politics – a well designed platform for thematic research. The Castle of Light will be place for several events: large and small scale exhibitions, movie evenings, book openings, authors’ lecturers, different conferences and workshops, happenings and much more.
