MIKES KELEMEN PROGRAM
Mikes Kelemen Program focuses on preserving the diaspora's material heritage, collecting its elements in a systematic manner, transferring them to Hungary and making provision for their appropriate utilization. The program was established with the cooperation of the State Secretariat for Hungarian Communities Abroad of the Ministry of Public Administration and Justice and the National Szechenyi Library.
Unused books, documents and other material heritage related to Hungary are expected to be delivered to our store-houses between January 1 and September 30, 2014. They will then be transferred to Hungary, where the National Szechenyi Library will take care of them.
Donations will mainly be distributed to libraries and schools of the Carpathian Basin. Furthermore, we are planning to support public collections located in Hungary and the Carpathian Basin, which already include a significant emigrant collection.
