Our second stop in Crete was in the town of Rethymno. On Stavrianos Mpiris Str. 6, just a few metres from the angry wintry sea, stands the town’s Central Public Library. Since 2017, the Library has been housed in a new modern, spacious building.
The Koventareios Municipal Library of Kozani is one of the largest and best organized historical libraries in Greece. It is famous for the large number of its early printed material, including five incunables. So, it is not surprising that the first stop in our journey of searching for and recording incunabula in Greece was Kozani and the Koventareios.
