On 4 February, the Czech capital announced that the Municipal Library in Prague (MKP) will soon begin the construction of a new multifunctional building in Petřiny.

The new establishment will replace the existing library building in Prague 6, which was built in the 1950s and no longer serves its purpose.

Part of the building, which will be designed by architects from the monom studio and the Zavadil studio, will be a chamber hall for cultural, educational and community events and will hold the necessary equipment for so-called coworking, study or creative meetings.

The library will be freely connected to the garden and there will be a terrace for outdoor seating as well as a kitchenette for preparing snacks.

While the first and second floors will be dedicated to books and such meetings, the ground floor will act as a space where visitors can obtain information regarding services and events.

The building will also feature a multifunctional hall on an underground level, where events such as film screenings and musical performances can be held without disturbing readers.

The preparation of such a centre has dragged on for more than 10 years.

The construction of the multifunctional building will cost approximately CZK 226 million and end by the autumn of 2023.
