|History (of the Library)|
According to the chronicler, in 1825, Count László Festetics donated 1,000 forints for a reading society that was to be set up within the scope of the noble county to facilitate the improvement of the national language and culture.
At the time of the foundation a book purchasing committee was formed whose important member was Dániel Berzsenyi, famous poet of the age. He exceeded not only as an advisor, but he was one of the most faithful readers of the library as well.
