Goce Delcev Library in Gevgelija has been restored

The facade of a house – the home of the Goce Delcev Library in Gevgelija – has gotten back its authentic look after being restored and conserved by a team of experts last year. The overhauled facility, dating from the late 19th century, was one of the 250 buildings included in the Culture Ministry’s programme for restoration of old facades.

“I’m pleased that the genuine architectural appeal of the facility has been restored. This year the interior will be furnished as part of the second stage of the project,” said Minister of Culture Elizabeta Kanceska-Milevska after visiting the overhauled premises.

The building has been functioning as a library since World War II. ‘Goce Delcev’ is the only public library in Gevgelija offering 60.000 books to over 800 members.

In the past several years, the Ministry of Culture also funded other projects enriching the cultural life of the municipality located in the southernmost part of Macedonia.

The reconstructed Gevgelija Theater was promoted in 2011 and the overhauled Turkish bath (hamam) was inaugurated two months ago becoming a space for organizing exhibitions by the Association of Artists in Gevgelija.
