Welcome to our visitors and readers at our new place of
György Fejér Town Library
at 3 Zeppelin square.

In the last 5 decades after our institution was established in 1953 it operated in the Festetics Castle in a fascinating art memorial environment. The rooms of this building didn’t serve every purpose of the librarian tasks.

The town leadership made possible for us to welcome you in a rebuilt office and a newly built reading room in such a library which is worthy of Keszthely, the town of culture.

In our web side you can get to know our versatile services of which the traditional borrowing is only one part.

I hope every visitor find can possibilities meeting their requirements and interests in our offers.
I wish you useful and pleasant spare time in the only public library of our city.

Mrs. Judit Papp-Beke
Library manager
