Library Šiška is situated on Trg Komandanta Staneta in a new residential commercial building along Celovška cesta.

There are numerous reading spaces and computer points which can be found throughout the library on two floors.

On the ground floor there is a large reading room and next to the reading room you can find a separate spacious study room.

Special feature of the library are its unique specialized collections:

  • Dog books collection offers materials on raising dogs and training and on individual breeds. We organize regular educational workshops for children on responsible dog ownership and on distinctive features and needs of individual breeds.
  • Equestrian collection offers very diverse materials on raising horses as well as on equestrian sports, from basic knowledge of riding to top-notch knowledge in the field. Books on equestrian sports are complemented by documentary video recordings.

We organize numerous entertaining and educational events for all age groups of visitors.

For children we organize story time, creative workshops and educational workshops relating dogs. In cooperation with Helping Paws Club we regularly organize meetings called Reading with paws at which children read books to dogs.

For adults we regularly organize literary evenings, lectures on diverse topical subjects, educational workshops and travel lectures. We offer foreign languages workshops as well.

The library offers secondhand bookselling, where books that have been donated or written off are sold at very low prices.
