Description: We are a small town library which serves around 10% of the population of the Town Prelog, so we have 800 members. Library has become a bustling service provider with a home like atmosphere where elders can relax and read newspapers while drinking coffee, kids and moms with babies can come in and play with our wooden toys and read or borrow some of our picture books, adults can participate in our monthly reading club meetings and our trivia quiz league. Some of the primary school classes are being held in the Library so that children get to know and gradually fall in love with reading, books and Library, and secondary school students use the library as the source of accurate information and free modern technology centre. Our library offers free membership to socially vulnerable categories (elders, unemployed, Roma national minorities). Main goal is to give our members unique experience connected to positive emotions and comfort while visiting the Library. We strive to be home away from home and the first place you would go whether you need a book comfort, free Wi-Fi, tablets or e-readers, reliable information, just to check your e-mail or use our Library as an office.
