The main goal of M. K. Čiurlionis National Museum of Art Library is to preserve and spread the written heritage, created throughout centuries of both Lithuanian and foreign countries. The library was founded in 1921. Currently, it keeps over 46 thousand documents of art history and theory, aesthetics, folk art, visual and applied-decorative art, architecture, monument protection and restoration, design, art photography, Lithuanian philology, etc.
In the formation of the library fund, a lot of attention was paid to the accumulation of art encyclopedias, reference books and bibliographic publications. The information fund consists of the exhibition, auctions catalogues, art magazines, continuing publications of Lithuania and other countries. A collection of world museum albums and guides to cultural monuments and places is quite rich. The library comprises the collection of completed Lithuanian art publications, and extremely rare foreign publications (published in XV-XVIII centuries).
The Library is Unique for several reasons:
These publications can be found via LIBIS system (https://www.libis.lt/) and in the catalogue of the library.
