The public library of Knin has been through many changes since her begginings as a reading room from 1891. It worked in the direction of development until the Homeland War, which had a very unfavorable impact on the previous functioning of the library. Since then, the library has been trying to recover and has moved to the premises of the old gymnasium next to the Knin Polytechnic Marko Marulić. For its 125th birthday the library has been relocated. So the most recent change of space and departments has followed in 2016, moving to the new building of the student dormitory Fra Lujo Marun and adding two new departments - the children's playroom and the audiovisual department. The library is located in the city center and is therefore easily accessible to all citizens of Knin but also strives to keep up with the times and thus offers its availability via the internet. The library is very active, both in the establishment of various events in the library space, as well as on its web and Facebook pages, through which it also seeks to get closer to its users.
