The Bibliotheca Alexandrina (BA) said on Wednesday it will partially resume operation on 9 August after a four-month closure due to the coronavirus.
The library said it will start by opening the main reading hall to researchers and post-graduate students only.
The working hours during the partial opening will be from 11 am to 3 pm. The BA will close on Fridays and Saturdays.
The BA, which was inaugurated in October 2002, overlooks the Mediterranean Sea.
