collects books, anthologies, specialist journals and newspapers focusing first and foremost on the history of Brno, public and social events in the city, its architecture, art and the lives of important personalities in Brno.
At the present time the library’s collections run to more than 22,000 items.
The specialist services offered by the library (a basic public library with a specialised collection) are used by external researchers (largely university students) in addition to the museum’s employees. Researchers also enjoy full access to the Manuscripto-rium database (manuscripts, old publications and maps in digital form).
Books may not be taken out of the library.
