The Békés County Library is located in the centre of the Munkácsy district; it offers more than 300 thousand documents, books, periodicals, films, music CDs, slides. In its community spaces, it organises book presentations, courses, camps, exhibitions and other programmes on request. The creative workshop, which was set up in 2019, offers individual or organised sessions to learn the basics of robotics, as well as microelectronics and skill-building games.
On the ground floor, in addition to book lending, you can read newspapers and magazines, and the free-use circulation area and snack bar are popular meeting places. Currently, the construction of a recreation room is still underway, which is planned to showcase Mihály Munkácsy's ties to Békéscsaba.
The upstairs reading room is a repository of documents for local use, where publications about Békés County can be read, films and music can be borrowed, and unique birthday newspapers are produced. Some of the documents of the Békés Collection, including Dezső Malonyay: The Life and Works of Mihály Munkácsy, are also available remotely from the electronic library: ek.bmk.hu.
Kindergarten and school groups and families can spend their free time in the children's library in a pleasant and useful way. The children's librarians also organise sessions on request.
The Munkácsy courtyard and the upstairs terrace offer visitors the opportunity to spend time outdoors with their chosen books.
We look forward to seeing you in the library!
