Description: The library has become interactive, maintaining the classic goal of remaining a book sanctuary. Today, readers can enjoy modern reading rooms, equipped with a space for children and youth, and many technical and other innovations. By opening the doors of the renewed library, the reader can spend a meaningful and interesting day here. Jonava Public Library is one of the community information, culture and leisure centers. Its main activities are to encourage people of all ages and social groups to read more, to improve reading skills, and to raise the prestige of reading. For this purpose, projects are organized, we participate in various actions, competitions, organize various events: audio readings, theatrical book presentations, literary afternoons, meetings, printed and virtual exhibitions, educational and other activities. The Book Terrace in the library yard is open 24 hours a day, where you can read books, the regional press, browse the Internet, communicate or otherwise spend your free time.
