Nauplion Central Public Library 'The Palamidis'


The library was founded in 1951 by the Nauplian Progressive Association ‘The Palamidis’ and is housed in the neo-classical building that was the old nursery school. During its first years of operation in the difficult post war years, it was the cultural and intellectual heart of the city. Today, continuing this work, the library contains 70,000 volumes, which have been added to with donations from Vassilios Kyriakopoulos; the family of the great Nauplian writer, Angelos Terzakis; and the collection from the High School, which contains some valuable editions, the oldest being from 1504. There is a lending library and a reading room, as well as a mobile library unit to provide for the children of the surrounding area. There are also educational programmes for local pupils and a public information centre, where information is available via a computer network. The rooms of the library have also played host to numerous cultural and intellectual events, and many important scholars and artists have spoken from the podium. The entrance to the library is decorated with busts of two important Nauplian poets, Antonis Lekopoulos, better known by the pseudonym ‘Anapliotis’, and Theodoros Kostouros. The city of Nafplio was a constant source of inspiration for both poets.
