The Library "G. T. Kirileanu" Neamt with 40 employees has an important role in community with 85.000 inhabitants. The "G.T. Kirileanu" Neamt County Public Library co-ordinates the activity of the public libraries of our county and furthers the Piatra-Neamt Municipality and Neamt county inhabitants interests in reading, study, information, education and recreation.

The "G.T. Kirileanu" Neamt County Public Library is aiming to continue the longlasting tradition in public reading (more than 130 years old). The actua history of our library begins in 1935 when returning in his native region, the scholar Gh. Teodorescu-Kirileanu materializes his desire of settling down in Piatra-Neamt together with his whole treasure of manuscripts, books and periodicals. The library officially became public in 1956, accordingly to the act of donation of 24-th February 1956, when G.T. Kirileanu founded in his house a documentary library for "opened mind people". Thanked to its owner's exemplary generosity, it was accessible to many readers interested in the cultural and historical past. After 1989 the County Public Library has been modernized and its spaces and services have been extended due to the decisions made by the local authorities.
