KALABAKA’S LIBRARY: A UNIQUE WINDOW INTO KNOWLEDGE
In 2012, Katerina Dimoula-Merriam founded the Educational, Literary and Cultural Civil Non-Profit Society (KDK) inspired by her father’s love for Kalabaka. On 19 July 2015, the Kalabaka Library opened its doors in a renovated three-level building in the center of the city, previously occupied by the municipal library.
The vision of the Kalabaka Library was born thanks to the belief in the importance of books and the confidence that it will become a beacon of knowledge by offering access to education and to the citizens of Kalabaka, but also to its Greek and foreign visitors.
KDK’s mission is to provide traditional and digital information services of educational, cultural and entertainment content. In order to achieve its vision, KDK organizes activities, workshops, talks and events to strengthen the social, cultural and economic life of Kalabaka’s citizens. These initiatives include star observations, book presentations, constructions, educational programs, film screenings, and a well-established summer campaign
This unique library is the cultural anchor of the city and focuses specifically on the needs of children and adolescents.
According to the statistics so far, the library is a pole of attraction not only for the locals but also for the visitors from all over Greece and abroad who visit the picturesque town of Kalabaka and the Holy Meteora.
The Kalabaka Library is another reason to visit the area. Combining amazing landscapes, unique activities and excursions in the nature with a modern library and a worth- visiting museum, Kalabaka is a unique destination all year round!
