As the district’s first Ervin Szabó Branch Library, the over half-century old library opened on 13th Oktober 1950 on 24 Lajos Kossuth street. Taking over 6500 books from the City Library, it began offering services for children and adults on 220 m2. The fast-improving library had 2500 members and over 12.000 books by the end of 1951, then in 1954 it had 5000 members. Due to the demolishing of the building, the children’s library ceased to exist in June 1967, then the adult section moved into a 119 m2 room on 86 Endre Ady street in October. In June 1980, the building was renovated, so the library - due to lack of a new place - was forced to suspend its services for 6 years. In 1986 - at the time as a temporary solution - the library resumed its operation as the main library of the district in the former spark plug factory, a two-floored, renewed building with 396 m2.
A part of the books were put on the shelves in a thematic order in the children and adult borrowing areas.
With longer opening hours, new services (audio- then video cassette-borrowing, family weekend programs) we tried to cater to the ever-changing readers’ needs. The inside and outside of the building began slowly deteriorating, starting from the mid-90s, so it became more and more unfit as a library.
The MESZL and the district government has been searching for a solution for years. At last, in 2002, with the cooperation of the capital city, the district government and MESZL, we managed to move to the ground floor of the newly-built apartment complex in the city center. The new library (larger, newly furnished reading areas, longer opening hours, new services) was opened on 27th January 2003.
