MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. The personnel of a scientific library which was destroyed by a heavy fire on January 30, have brought a small batch of books which survived the fire to new premises in Moscow on Monday. "It is a small batch which remained intact despite buckets of water poured out while the fire was being extinguished," a source from the destroyed library told TASS.
Last Friday around a ton of old newspapers dating back to 1917-1925 were removed from the destroyed library building to a cryo chamber of the Russian State Library to save the surviving newspapers from further decay due to low air temperatures in the chamber. The personnel of the ruined library are hoping that enough cryo chambers will be provided to save the bulk of the books from further decay.
The fire in the building of the Scientific Library on social sciences broke out in the library building in the southwest of Moscow on January 30. Operations to extinguish the fire had been complete by February 2. The fire destroyed more than five million books and valuable items. The overall losses of the scientific library were estimated at 2,320,000 items.
