The opening of the Municipal Library in 1955 was due to the donation of the private collection of the poet Afonso Lopes Vieira (born in 1878 / deceased in 1946).
It was located in the Paços do Concelho (City Hall building) until 1997, when its current location in Largo Cândido dos Reis (Terreiro) opened to the public. The Library is located in a restored building, fully adapted to reader’s needs.
