Laws and Legal Provisions
Law N° 36, promulgated on October 16, 2008 and published in the official gazette OJ43, on 20/10/2008, organizes public institutions attached to the Ministry of Culture, including the Lebanese National Library. (See the original version of the law on public institutions in Arabic and the law on the Lebanese National Library).

By virtue of this law, the National Library becomes a public institution under the supervision of the Minister of Culture. The Council of Ministers appoints, by decree and on the proposal of the Minister of Culture, the Board of Directors, which has the decision-making authority and ensures the executive management of the institution for the fulfillment of its missions and roles.

The implementation decrees have not yet been promulgated, but the organizational chart and the job descriptions of the National Library have been defined.
