The majestic building of Limassol’s Municipal University Library has officially opened its doors to the public, once again in operation after a period of many years. The restored Pilavakis mansion, in which the library is housed, now has all the necessary areas to host thousands of books, as well as visitors and a variety of events and activities.

The restoration of the building was completed in collaboration with the Limassol Municipality and the Cyprus University of Technology, which is also in charge of the organization of the material and the operation of the library. The ground floor hosts the Municipal Library material, which includes thousands of books of literature, ethnography, history, psychology and information about Cyprus. The basement hosts the collection of the CUT Library, which covers subject areas related to fine arts, philosophy and art history, with books in the English, French, Italian, Spanish, German and Greek languages.

The first floor of the former mansion now features different types of rooms to serve all the library’s visitors, from a computer room to private study rooms, as well as an event room. The majestic architecture of the building, featuring columns and the elaborate capitals, the engraved details on the ceiling and the characteristic mosaic on the floor are all constant reminders of the history of this space, while each of the rooms have been furnished with a simple and modern decor to create a cozy and pleasant environment for visitors.


Anyone can acquire a library membership card at an indicative, annual fee.
