The public libraries in Poland have a long tradition. As an institution which goal is to meet the cultural needs of the entire community, her social role gained and lost importance through centuries due to the turbulent political history of Poland and the technological advancement brought by the modern era. Also, due to the widespread socio-economic fluctuations, the structure of its network has undergone many changes. Today, it is based primarily on the administrative division of the country, and its framework is governed by the Act on Libraries. The research carried out by the authorities tells us about the number of public libraries in Poland, infrastructure and user profile. Based on this data, there is a visible path to the development of its network and the advantages and disadvantages of its management. The impact that public libraries have on the community's cultural life is more clear when we look at it in a smaller area. Public libraries in Warsaw are a prime example. With the Warsaw Public Library as the center, the network of public libraries in the city is well organized and connected, offering residents a wide range of services in all city quarters.
