The library hosts many events, including exhibitions, literary evenings, storytelling hours, creative workshops, and book clubs. Due to the proximity of the Italian border, it welcomes a growing number of foreign visitors. A local collection is featured and maintained with special care and pride. The library participates in dLib.si and Kamra.si digital collections. It also offers to its members a variety of digital databases, most of them with the possibility of a remote access.
The library is fully automated and RFID is implemented. Self-check stations are available on the premises.
Cross-border cooperation is stimulated by way of various joint projects; the library, for instance, participates in the project Primorci beremo ("The Primorska Region Reads"), which joins libraries of the Primorska region and some in the Italian border region.
Another project involving libraries in the same region is a website called Primorci.si which brings biographies of personalities important to the region. It is a constantly growing collection of names.
