Happy birthday to the Varna Regional Library “Pencho Slaveykov”. 140 years ago, “Pencho Slaveykov” Regional Library opened its doors, and for 5 years Ellie – the digital librarian made on our platform helps readers to get answers to their questions or to re-assign borrowed literature, etc., to free the library team to have time for more valuable tasks.
