Very soon the National Library of Lithuania will have all issues of the Lithuanian newspaper Lietuvis [The Lithuanian] published in Ireland. This was made possible because of an agreement signed with the publisher of the newspaper, Sergey Tarutin. The agreement foresees a transfer of all the issues of the newspaper to the Library and their digitization. The agreement was personally initiated by the Ambassador of the Republic of Lithuania to Ireland Egidijus Meilūnas in cooperation with the Embassy of the Republic of Lithuania in Ireland.
Launched sixteen years ago, the newspaper Lietuvis has become a chronicle of Lithuanian life and various activities in Ireland. Currently it is the only printed periodical in Europe.
