The Ljubljana City Library is the largest public library in Slovenia, with 35 branches and 47 mobile library stops, and the most networked cultural institution in Ljubljana.

At our place you may find your next favourite book, borrow a movie, listen to music, use the facilities for creativity, or simply learn something new.

You may visit cultural events, meet with friends, afford yourself virtual access in the library or outside it. From wherever you access us, books, films, magazines and information in digital form will never run out.
