About us

Palanga Public Library was founded on March 15 1937. The first director of the Library was  writer Butkų Juzė. There have been many substantial political, economic and historical changes over a long period in Lithuania. Palanga is a summer resort, so it is very important to collect documents about its history, famous people, so as to provide a possibility for holidaymakers, tourists and library visitors to learn about the history, heritage and culture, unique nature and current situation of the town.

The library offers to its visitors a rich publication fund for adults and children, a wide range of periodicals, electronic catalogues, information databases, local collection, internet access, various events, computer literacy training courses and professional, kind and well-cultured service. Palanga City municipal public library has two branches – Children's Literature Section "Gintaras" and  Šventoji Library branch.
