The Vilnius Jewish Public Library finally opened its doors on December 16, 2011! It is the first Jewish public library in Lithuania since the liquidation of the Vilna Ghetto in 1943. In 2004, Wyman Brent had the idea of founding this library in the city of Vilnius formerly known as Jerusalem of the North.
For more information, please visit the library’s website as well as Wyman Brent’s personal website.
Here you can see the short film „Beautiful Dreamers“ which talks about the founding of the Vilnius Jewish Public Library as well as the story behind Andrea Oberheiden-Brent and Wyman Brent:

Hi, The link above accidentally has a .org ending, which does not work. The correct link is http://vilnius-jewish-public-library.com/ . Congratulations on your wedding! I had the good fortune of meeting your husband a few weeks ago at the Simon Wiesenthal Center library. I wish you both the best.
Thanks for letting us know. The .org address is still valid, but I forgot to include the correct link (the word „public“ was added last year). Now it is working. I completely forgot that this site was already online as we only wanted to upload this later – after our wedding. We aren’t married yet. 🙂 We will get married on August 22nd in Marion, South Carolina (www.andreaandwyman.weebly.com). Many thanks for your wishes.
With kindest regards from Wyman too,
