Public Library of Syros

The Public Library of Syros was founded in 1926 and from 1953 is housed on the ground floor of the Cultural Centre. The library is officially mentioned for the first time in 1926 and starts with a core of about 2000 volumes of books from library collections of the Gymnasium (1835) and especially the library of Iakovos Rotas, beloved friend of Korais, the Bishop of Cyclades Anthimos Komnenos (1842) and others. Particular mention should be made to the collection of the local press that starts from the last century and up until today. Approximately 45,000 volumes of books are available to the reading public.

Many book oriented events are organised during the year.
