The Anton Sovre Library Hrastnik is a public library. It was originally set up by the Svoboda (“Freedom”) Association at the end of the 1940s, but in 1960 it acquired a new organisational structure with the aim of educating the community and organising cultural events for adults as well as children.
In 1998 it was renamed after Anton Sovre, who was a translator of classical languages. Since 2002 the library has been an autonomous municipal cultural organisation, which has grown into not only a significant multimedia information centre but also a multi-purpose cultural venue.
In 2008 the library collection consisted of 42,928 items and had 3,786 registered readers. In that same year the library organised 246 events.
