Kórnik Library

Kórnik Library (Polish: Biblioteka Kórnicka) is one of the most famous Polish libraries, founded by Tytus Działyński in 1828 at Kórnik. Currently the library, despite being robbed by the Germans during World War II, is one of the five largest libraries in Poland and contains roughly 400,000 volumes, including 30,000 books older than 150 years, and 14,000 manuscripts (including some of Adam Mickiewicz and Juliusz Słowacki). Since 1953, it is a part of the National Library of Poland.
