On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania, the exhibition “Verba Volant, Scripta Manent” displays the most valuable, interesting, and significant 14th-21st-century books, manuscripts, maps, photographs, sheet music, and shellac records. Many objects on display are included in the UNESCO Lithuanian National Memory of the World Registry.
Collected and preserved throughout a century, a collection of documentary heritage in this particular arrangement is presented to the public for the very first time. The Latin proverb: Spoken words fly away, whereas written words remain, chosen for the title of the exhibition captures the significance of the preserved documentary heritage.
