Attaining the status of independent public institute in 1994, the Radlje ob Dravi Public Library traces its roots back to 1950. It runs branches in Muta, Vuzenica, Podvelka, Ribnica na Pohorju, and Kapla. In addition to lending book and non-book material, the library houses a reading room and a local collection department, which contains various writing on the region. A notable feature is the collection of Ferdo Leitinger, also comprising approximately 3000 old books – the oldest from 1662 –, as well as other documents and photographs. The collection is kept at the library and available for viewing by request.

As a cultural and information centre, the library hosts literary evenings, lectures, book presentations, story-telling hours, creative workshops, and exhibitions. In doing so, the library strives to foster reading culture and lifelong learning.
