The history of Trebnje Library goes back to 1962, when teacher France Režun set up a small reading room in the Prosvetni dom. It is named after Pavel Golia (1887–1959), one of the most important Slovene authors of plays for young audiences. At the outset the library had 1,800 books, but this has since increased to more than 70,000 units of book and multimedia material available to approximately 4,700 registered members. Today the Pavel Golia Library is the public library of Municipality of Trebnje, with three additional lending branches in Mirna, Šentrupert, and Mokronog. The facility also houses an e-point, where users are able to access the Internet. The library organises various cultural events, story telling hours and creative workshops for children, literary evenings, book presentations, literary tea parties, and exhibitions. In 2009 they launched the project “Our Club of Fantasy” [Naš klub domišljije] in cooperation with Dob Prison, the aim of which is to encourage literary and artistic activity among the prisoners, whose contributions are then published in a collection.
