Prague will begin the long-awaited construction of a new library

On February 4, the Czech capital announced that the Municipal Library of Prague (MKP) will soon start construction of a new multifunctional building in Petřiny.

The new facility will replace the existing library building in Prague 6, which was built in the 1950s and no longer serves its purpose.

Part of the building, which will be designed by architects from monom studio and the Zavadil studio, will be a room for cultural, educational and community events and will host the necessary equipment for so-called coworking, study or creation meetings.

The library will be freely connected to the garden and there will be a terrace for outdoor seating as well as a kitchenette for preparing snacks.

While the first and second floors will be dedicated to books and meetings, the ground floor will serve as a space where visitors can obtain information about services and events.

The building will also include a multifunctional hall in the basement, where events such as film screenings and musical performances can be held without disturbing readers.

The preparation of such a center has dragged on for more than 10 years.

The construction of the multifunctional building will cost around CZK 226 million and will be completed in autumn 2023.
