Prague City Library

Located in the center of Old Town on Marianske Square is the headquarters of the Prague City Library. The Prague City Library (Mestska Knihovna in Czech) network is user-friendly and surely has a lot to offer with an extensive list of titles to borrow from prose to poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and much more. While the library’s branches are located throughout Prague the headquarters is most impressive with an attractive interior complete with two floors of books in Czech and other foreign languages, a cute library café with small snacks, coffee, tea, wine and beer for affordable prices, lecture rooms where Czech language classes are sometimes held and a spacious gallery. In the foyer of the main building you can see the intriguing and unique tower of books, an installation piece by Slovak artist Matej Kren. The building itself went through an extensive reconstruction in the late nineties, ensuring that the library is modern and boasts a welcome atmosphere. The building is worth a visit and if you so choose, you can also register for a library membership, which costs approximately 80 CZK per year. The main library also rents CDs, DVDs, sheet music, maps and more plus boasts a quiet reading room with current newspapers and magazines and an Internet connection. All of the titles are well organized in an electronic catalogue, which can be accessed from the home via the Internet. If you wish to explore the world through books, visit the Prague City Library and discover its literary treasures!
