2010-05-20 15:12:15



Dear Readers!




We welcome You to the renewed and enlarged Budafoki Library as a modern five-storey citadel of culture, which has moved to Kossuth Lajos utca (1221 Kossuth Lajos utca 30.)




Our other branch library - located in Újpalota and moved to the central part of the 15th district (1157 Zsókavár utca 28.) - is also ready to meet the requirements of our visitors.


What can you find in the renewed libraries?

In the case of both branch libraries, our main goal is to provide 'old' readers and visitors to-be with rich collections of various documents and several services. According to our conception, we try to provide all kinds of groups of the society with the information (or the information sources) they need.


The libraries, developed on an area of 1120 and 700 square metres, are free from hindrance and equipped with some special facilities to make the services available for the handicapped as well.
