Lavrič Library in Ajdovščina traces its origins back to 1864, when Dr Karel Lavrič (1818–1876), a liberal politician and lawyer, established Slovenia’s 11th reading room. It has branches in Vipava, Podnanos, and Dobravlje as well as a mobile library.

Members can make use of a 45-seat reading room and a number of PC workstations. In addition to making the substantial collection of books, magazines, CDs, DVDs and other material accessible to its users, the library functions as a significant cultural, information and social centre of the region, striving to foster reading culture. It hosts events for children and adults; the elderly may join in on a number of meetings, while librarians also pay visits to the nursing home. A user-friendly institution, it enables access for disabled individuals, provides facilities for mothers with babies, and lends magnifying glasses to afford easier reading.

The library participates in the project Primorci beremo (“The Primorska Region Reads”), which joins all libraries of the Primorska region and some in the Italian border region in one of the largest reading campaigns in Slovenia.
