Collection and activities
As a public library it is organised to suit different groups of users, and besides various cultural and literary events, it also hosts diverse thematic exhibitions, workshops for children, and lifelong education courses.
The library puts great focus on collecting old books and materials, having established the local collection department already at the very beginning. The collection comprises around 9,700 units including books, articles, pamphlets, audio-visual materials, periodicals, photographs, postcards, bibliographies, and manuscripts. One of the most valuable books in the collection is Jurij Dalmatin's translation of the Bible from 1584.
The library also houses the Prežihov Voranc (1893–1950) and Leopold Suhodolčan (1928–1980) memorial rooms dedicated to 2 renowned Slovene authors. International cooperation is established with Slovene institutions in nearby Austria.
