As a part of the restitution process, here is the (just released)
official announcement by the Lithuanian Minister of Culture that the
Vilnius Jewish Library will open in Vilna in the late Fall 2011.

Though specifically cultural in its orientation, the Library will
contain a large collection of books and multimedia directly related to
Judiasm, Yiddish, and of the Holocaust ~ items already in Vilna coming
from German Jewish Organizations earlier this year.
American Wyman Brent will be curator of the Library.

Here is the article ~
