Biblioteket i Alexandria har varit och är en viktig faktor i kampen
för demokrati och mänskliga rättigheter
i Egypten. Boken är ett farligt ting för auktoritära regimer.

Ur en artikel i Wall Street Journal:

But Mr. Serageldin says that although the library operates under the
auspices of Mr. Mubarak—the president laid the building's foundation
stone and his wife chairs the board of trustees—it has proved to be a
key tool in "a battle for the hearts and minds" of Egyptians, and
whose programs served as a catalyst for the current civic unrest.
"We're spreading the values of democracy, freedom of expression,
tolerance, diversity and pluralism that I'm hoping are taking root in
the young generation."
