The Latvian National Library (LNL), otherwise know as the "Palace of Light," will finally be open to the public starting Thursday, June 12, as the director of LNL, Andris Vilks, said at the press conference dedicated to the final inspection and opening, reports LETA.

Visitors will have access to all seven floors for four days.
