"Vid Omišljanin" Library

The library is named after a writer and illuminator who lived in the late 14th century.

Omišalj town library is located in the municipal building, which was built in the period prior to World War One upon the ruins of the Frankapan castle. In 1396, Vid Omišljanin wrote and painted a breviary of 468 parchment sheets using uncial Glagolitic letters. He made it for the Parish Church of St. Bartholomew in Roč, a small town in central Istria. The breviary is kept in the Austrian National Library in Vienna.

The first reading room was opened in Omišalj in 1884. It was moved to its present premises in 2002.
