The library building is not full of stories from the pages of books, but also of the animated history. Take a walk along the old corridors, touch the mounds, and perhaps a bit of history. Despite its historical value, the Považská Library with a modern era. We wish pleasant reading.

The library in Považská Bystrica began writing its history in 1925, but it received much of its present address much later. Perseverance and the desire to spread love to the books has brought it through uncertain beginnings, unstable address, and lack of finances. She settled in a building that brides brothers built in 1900. There was a bryndza bubbling in the space where the pages of books were now being sampled. The turbulent destiny of the Jewish family, however, broke this tradition and the building for decades hosted various state offices.

We think of the disabled

The Považská Library was not here until 1977, and it was quickly settled on Štúrová Street and it grew blossomed. Gradually, the music department, videorecorder, independent bibliographic department joined the bookshelves. There was a book reporter, literary creativity competitions and a reading room. The area has also received goodwill by establishing a library for disabled people in 1994 and setting up a branch of the Central Library for the Blind and the Blind. A few years later, she received an award for active activity, as well as the Prize of the Mayor of the city.

Old New Wall

Go through the history of this magnificent cultural monument today at the site of the Monument of Eighty Years Považská Bystrica. She went out in 2005 when the building underwent reconstruction and the book fund was revised. Visiting this mature lady and laughing through the old corridors followed by important personalities of literary, acting and scientific Slovak life is an experience for yourself.
