80s literary activity in its printed form and the publishing efforts that support it, will form the "Library" section. Literature, both Greek and translated, essays and scientific studies that left their mark on this period, will be selected, annotated and indexed as an exhibit. Designed with re-enactment elements in mind, this section will offer its visitors the opportunity to enter a traditionally furnished reading room in which they will be able to browse and read some of the most important books (about 2,000), published in the 80s.
