The Folklore Library of the Hellenic Folklore Research Centre was founded in the very earliest years of the Folklore Archive. It was further organized after World War II and acquisitions were generally dictated by the research interests and needs of the Centre’s Research Staff Members.
The library is a specialized scholarly non-lending library and is used chiefly by the Research Staff Members of the Centre. It is, however, also used by scholars, postgraduate students and other researchers who may wish to consult it. It contains about 40,000 titles, among which are rare folklore and other publications of the 19c and the early 20c.
The library is acquiring material all the time and is systematically kept up to date through purchases and donations of books, journals, offprints and other Greek or foreign publications.
Today access to the printed material of the library is also possible through an online catalogue.
Reading room opening times: Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday-Friday, 9.00΄ a.m. – 14.00΄ p.m.
