Public Libraries System

In the area of 210 Slovenian municipalities, there are 58 public libraries with 273 branches and 12 mobile libraries with 663 service points in 584 villages.

More than half a million of the Slovenian citizens are members of public libraries, and they visit public libraries almost 10 million times in a year. They borrow different material, visit the events, participate in trainings, use the computers and the Internet, access to a range of databases, and read newspapers and journals.

The members can use the library services virtually by visiting:

On the average, every Slovenian citizen borrows 12 items per year and this brings us to the top of EU. The contribution for library operation is 24 EUR per inhabitant of Slovenia per year.
