Vytautas Dekšnys, Regina Koženiauskienė, and Vyturys Jarutis were decorated with medals for Merit to Culture Gloria Artis, presented by Ambassador Urszula Doroszewska. The Director of the Book Institute, Dariusz Jaworski, participated in the Saint Jerome's Feast Day celebrations, and the Book Institute was a partner of the event.
