Do you know that the Fran Levstik Library is the one unit of the LCL that is most distant from Ljubljana? It is located at the very centre of Velike Lašče in the first floor of the Levstik's house.

When entering our library, you pass by our gallery, where pictures or photographs are permanently exhibited by the academic painter Samo Kovač, who was born in the area, and who keeps the exhibition up to date and interesting.

The library space is diverse; blue-green rooms are named after our great men: the Primož Trubar room, the Josip Stritar room, the Fran Levstik room, and the Jože Javoršek room. The memorial room of Fran Levstik and Josip Stritar, which we gladly exhibit, is also accessible free of charge.

The Fran Levstik Library is the only freely accessible public space in the local community. Children may pass the time while waiting for afternoon activities by reading or using the computer, and their parents may pass the time by reading in our reading room, which is well supplied with magazines, or by socializing in the library.

The memories of Velike Lašče

Conversations with guests who recall their young age spent in Velike Lašče are being led by Jože Starič. These recorded events are broadcasted on local cable TV channel, and are important for the local materials studies of the library.

Thursday gatherings

Literary evening events are led by our retired librarian Mihaela Andromako Rihar. Her quality presentations of literature are always accompanied by surprise-guests: translators, travellers, painters... A literary evening is thus suddenly transformed into a travelogue, an art lecture or simply into an enjoyable conversation.

Fairy-tale hours

Our fair-tale teller Slava Petrič doesn't merely tell an ordinary kind of fairy tale, but reveals to children the worlds of poetry, of dance, of artistic creativity and of local cultural heritage.
