The library of the Slovenian Theatre Institute is a public specialized library in the field of culture.
Apart from works from the field of theatre history and dramatic literature, the library collects materials on general cultural history which support both current work in the museum (exhibitions and publishing activity) and research and studies of the mentioned fields.
Some of the most valuable works in the library are the archive of the Dramatic Society, an old collection of dramatic texts of the SNT Drama Ljubljana, and most of the older Slovenian books with theatre content. A large part of the library stock comprises the texts for original Slovenian dramas and translations of dramatic literature.
With purchases, gifts, and exchanging our issues with related institutions (theatres, archives, museums, and galleries), the library collection grows by several hundred volumes each year.
