Celje Central Library is the regional library for the Savinja region and operates branches in Dobrna, Šmartno, Vojnik, and Štore. It is also the seat of the Library Association of Celje. It comprises five departments, which feature fiction for children and adults, non-fiction, music and film material. The library's local history collection department holds a wealth of information on the Municipality of Celje region in the form of books, newspapers, photographs, postcards, manuscripts, etc.

An education and cultural centre (in 2009 reconstructed following the design by STVAR Architects), the library also hosts story-telling hours, creative workshops, theatre and puppet plays, dance shows, exhibitions, author and book presentations, and book clubs. In addition, librarians pay visits and read to children in the local hospital. The University of the Third Age takes place within the library, offering educational courses in foreign languages, culture, art, history, and creativity. The library's website is designed in such a way as to cater to different groups of users, and provides a bevy of information and interactive applications.

The library holds an important collection of Alma Karlin's legacy and maintains the Alma M. Karlin Virtual Home. The Celje Central Library also took over the coordination of the Kamra.si regional libraries' portal, dedicated to the narration of local histories.
