The Vladimir Nazor Library at Vodovodna Street in Zagreb marked its 70th birthday this year. It is the main area library with nine branches – eight local libraries and one gallery – the VN Gallery, covering the western part of the city, the area of Črnomerec and Susedgrad. This is the largest library network which is part of the Zagreb City Library system. In 1948, when it was founded, Črnomerec was the city outskirts, the neighbourhood of the first Zagreb railway station, the first Zagreb industrial zone, a neighbourhood of military barracks and bars. Today, this is a wider city centre, but the number of cultural institutions in this part of the city has not increased significantly in these 70 years, and the library has remained the central cultural institution for the local population, the neighbourhood’s living room, and the venue to exchange knowledge and information. Since 1969, it has been located at today’s premises, the first in Zagreb built specifically to be a library. That same year, it was named after the great Croatian poet Vladimir Nazor. With its numerous and varied activities, collections and programmes, the library is now a book centre, a neighbourhood centre, a creativity centre, a place of inclusion, a place of learning, a place to play and imagine, a place of dialogue, a green place, and a place of leisure. The biggest compliment a library can receive is when its users call it OUR LIBRARY. A library is made up of collections, staff and users, and in Our Library, there is a strong cooperation with local institutions, associations and individuals, with whom we are together building a cultural landscape, and thus contribute significantly to the identity of the city district.
