Arteteka

  ul. Rajska 12 ,   Old Town         more than a year ago
Our favourite branch of Kraków's library system, Arteteka lends DVDs, CDs, comics, boardgames, video games and other media. The media collection is expanding all the time, and the selection isn't bad (except for the English language comics collection, which is pitiful). There are computers for public use, and you can watch films, play boardgames and video games right on site. Located over two floors of the modern Małopolska Garden of the Arts, the building is quite cool and has become a very popular place for students to camp out and study (so much so that it can be annoying to even browse the aisles). Art exhibits, festival events, conferences and community meetings are also occasionally organised here.

If you want to borrow anything you need a library card, and your card must also be shown upon entry (why? we have no idea - it's annoying). Getting a card issued on the spot is no problem for locals, but for tourists there's not much sense to it.

The editor is right, I love this place - I basically use it as my local video rental and the selection is decent. But it can be really annoying sometimes during the school year. You have kids literally lying all over the floor between the aisles - as if that''s a good place to read or study. I can''t even browse the shelves, and it''s amazing that these students don''t even move out of your way when it''s clear you are trying to use the library. The staff needs to step in and tell people where they can and cannot sit. In my opinion, sitting in the aisles between stacks (which are not very wide) should be an obvious no-no.
