Bergen public library has its main library in the city centre and 6 branch libraries. Bergen public library also runs the libraries in Bergen prison and Bjørgvin prison.
In addition to a wide choice of modern Norwegian and foreign literature and other material, the library owns valuable special collections and archives from earlier times. A total number of 700.000 books, periodicals, sheet music, CDs, videos, videogames, etc are available for library users. Everything published after 1964, with the exception of some of the older sheet music is now accessible via WWW, and over half of the older collections have been converted.
