Libraries in the Ore Mountains

This booklet is the first collective work of The Municipal library Litvinov and The Municipal library Olbernhau which established cooperation in 1998. The cooperation was established with financial support from Phare. Though the library system is little bit different on the both sides of the border we have an opportunity to compare. This publication offers information about the history of libraries, statistical data and sometimes even curiosities. At the end of each part about the particular library there is an interesting text about the legend about the town where the library is situated or the legend about its nearest surroundings.
