The campaign for the new City Library building in Zagreb

By Ismena Meic

The City of Zagreb strategic plan for 2020 finally includes a new City Library building. The Zagreb City Libraries network expert team was assembled to elaborate on the existing project idea “New City Library in Zagreb” and assist in preparation for public urban planning and building tender. Expert team has prepared a document “New City Library in Zagreb: Library Programme” based on the statistics, elaboration of the new and functional work integration in the central library for The Zagreb City Libraries network and reflections on the functional space organization for providing quality service to the population of Zagreb. Main purpose of the Library Programme is to point out that the new green City Library building needs to be green and sustainable, built on an adequate location, but also ensure a quality study for public urban planning and building tender.

One of solutions for permanent location of the City Library is Paromlin. Paromlin is on the map and in the memory of the city as one of the most important monuments of industrial architecture in Zagreb. Transforming Paromlin into the new City Library will contribute to efforts to transform neglected industrial architecture into public spaces or to transform a neglected area in the city centre into a living public space, with dominantly public contents.
