School Library of Požega Gymnasium has a long tradition and is one of the oldest school libraries in the Republic of Croatia. It was founded in 1699 with the foundation of Gymnasium. It preserves old and extremely valuable book materials which date from the 16th to the 20th century, mainly in Latin, German and Croatian language. It witnessed many changes in Croatian education, which influenced its choice and purchase of materials. Part of the professor's library was proclaimed a national monumental heritage and is kept in the School Museum. By moving Gymnasium to a new building in 2009, the school library was given an enviable modern space suitable for carrying out library activities. Today, library materials are organized in several collections, where the Possegana Local Heritage Collection stands out. Users are also provided with a digital catalog that enables faster access to information about available library materials. The school library maintains various school and city activities: from exhibitions, lectures and workshops to concerts. Therefore, the school library of Požega Gymnasium is an important part of Požega's history and culture, but also of the state, especially in the field of education and librarianship.
