The NSZL's temporary exhibition presents an innovative and family-friendly approach to time in ancient and Christian culture: in addition to calendars, chronicles, postcards and photographs, visitors can try out tangible and digital curiosities for children, too.
On 10 April 2024, the Ambassador of the Republic of Peru to Hungary, Edgar Pérez Alván, visited the NSZL.
The National Library of Foreign Literature (OIK) reopened its doors on Saturday, 6 April 2024, with a public family day, which was dedicated to the world of the Lord of the Rings, including the ceremonial unveiling of the 100-volume Tolkien collection.
We would like to inform our readers that on Thursday, 11 April 2024, the website and catalogues of the National Library of Foreign Literature will be temporarily unavailable due to IT maintenance. We kindly ask for your patience and understanding!
The manuscripts of Ferenc Kölcsey’s prose works and six of his previously unknown poem fragments, manuscript letters and poems by Julia Szendrey, as well as 19th century photographs, including daguerreotypes of the Egressy family, have been made available to the public in the NSZL’s Copia and Fototér content service.
On 13 March 2024, Judit Gerencsér, Deputy Director General, and Zoltán Lewalt-Jezierski, Head of Cabinet, welcomed a three-member delegation from the Embassy of the People's Republic of China to our institution.
All OIK services will be available again from 8 April 2024.
The exhibition, which will be open until 14 June 2024, will not only showcase the special technique photographs in the collection, but also briefly explore the era of experimentation, the way photography has evolved from the camera obscura to the mass-produced cabinet card.
Tolkien Day is back this spring! This year, the long-standing event will include a special event: the opening of the Tolkien Collection at the OIK, where all Tolkien lovers are welcome. 
Our temporary exhibition The Forms of Time opens on 12 April 2024.
