A library promoting the culture of the Roma people and other minorities will open in the Transitdisplay gallery in the center of Prague as of February 1 by a marathon reading from a Roma author's book.

The library, named Romafuturismo, wants to offer books by living African authors. Romafuturismo is a project of Roma artist Ladislava Gaziova and it will be based on volunteers' activities.

The library will be open two days a week. People will be either able to borrow books or read right in the library.

The library wants to promote the emancipation of ethnic groups and cultures that are discriminated against and also serve as a platform for discussion meetings and presentations of authors and Roma personalities.

The first 12-hour reading marathon, starting at 7:00, February 1, will present a book by Elena Lackova (1921-2003), one of the most significant figures among the Roma intellectuals.
