From the history of the library building:
The library was founded in 1857, when Pēteris Biezais, a teacher at Galgauskas Primary School, established the Reading Society. The list of the first registered books - 102 books - has been preserved. There is a lack of information about the library's activities during World War II. After the war, the library resumed its work on October 4, 1949.
