The Belgrade City Library is the largest lending library in Serbia. It includes 13 municipal libraries from the territory of the City of Belgrade.

It consists of the Roman Hall, Vuk’s Hall, the Art Department Reading Room and the Gallery.
The Roman Hall is a unique space with an archaeological site in situ and a collection of stone fragments comprising sculptures, altars, Roman tombstones (stellas) and other stone art originating from the territory of Singidunum and the Danube-region of the province of Upper Mesia, created in the period between the 2nd and 4th century. The antique ambiance of the Roman Hall is a representative gathering point, where our citizens may attend numerous cultural programs that take place every day.
Vuk’s hall is located on the first floor of the Library. It is a real, but small gallery of paintings dedicated to Belgrade. This hall receives its name from its central painting – a portrait of Vuk Karadžić, painted by Beta Vuksanović. The oval table in this hall provides seats for 20 attendees. Additionally,30 more seats are located on the hall’s semi-circular platform. This hall is ideal for press conferences, workshops, lectures, book presentations and the like.
The Arts Department Reading-Room is located on the second floor of the Library and provides 64 seats to work at. The Reading-room is also used for hosting cultural and art events. The number of seats can be increased up to 120 for this purpose. Having hosted a range of programs from areas of visual arts, architecture, archeology, music, and philosophy, the Reading-room is included among the most representative cultural venues of Belgrade.
The Gallery hosts different exhibitions, from art to music and literature.
