The association initiates various projects, round tables, professional meetings, and lectures aimed at facilitating better cooperation and information exchange among the 58 public libraries, which play an important role as local cultural and information centres.
A number of educational courses, workshops, and visits to book fairs are organised with a view to promoting and fostering a high standard of expert knowledge in library science. The association outlined the educational programme for directors of public libraries which starts in the school year 2013–2014.
Publishing scientific publications from the field of librarianship is another important facet of the association's activities.
A notable project is also the regional libraries portal Kamra.si, launched in 2004.
