About 40 000 Books of Sighnaghi District Library Got Rot In the Basement of Public School

About 40 000 books of the Sighnaghi district library got rot in the basement of the public school. District governor Nodar Kochlamazashvili did not find building for the library despite many promises; he even did not take measures to take the books to better place.

The library was closed in Sighnaghi in March of 2007. During the rehabilitation works of the city, the ministry of economical development sold the building to the Company “Coca-Cola” where a hotel was opened.

About 70 000 books of the central library of Sighnaghi district were put in 1 200 sacks and thrawn in the basement of the first public school. In spring of 2009, as a result of the activities of the library personnel, the employees of the district administration took 30 000 books out of the basement and the rest 40 000 books got rot in the basement.

It is noteworthy that almost third part of the local budget is spent on the local authority in Sighnaghi district.
