The new central library building at Tel Aviv University was dedicated in the name of the Mexican philanthropist, Elias Sourasky, who was on hand for the ceremonies. Present also was Pinhas Sapir, Minister Without Portfolio and secretary-general of the Israel Labor Party, Dr. George S. Wise, president of the university, and several hundred faculty members and guests. The four-story library will eventually contain a half million books and facilities for 1,000 students.
