Kyrenia Society Library



This is generally known as the The Library.


The Kyrenia Society was started in 1977/78 as a cultural and social group and regularly organised trips to Turkey. The library started after the Society received a donation of books from a Scottish library. This is the focus of the Society's work now.


All the 20 000 plus books are donations and include a section of books on Cypriot History, Gardening, Cookery and a number by local authors as well as novels based on the island. Generally, the stock is strong on biographies and History and wide variety of readable novels.


There is an active membership including a group of volunteers who manage and run the library.


The membership which runs from 1st April each year being amazing value at 45₺ for an individual, 75₺ for a couple and 20₺ for young readers and temporary membership. A number of visitors join for the few weeks they are here.
