Rami Kütüphanesi Tarihçe

The Rami Barracks, an Ottoman-era structure originally erected in the 1770s, has been restored as the Rami Library – the window to information for İstanbul and Türkiye.

250 Years of History Resources for the Future

Following the restoration, renovation and reconstruction works carefully carried out by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Republic of Türkiye, the historical Rami Barracks is ready to become the largest living library in İstanbul.

The Rami Library, a witness to the past, a source for the future and bearing the full splendour of its 250-year history, is designed as an expansive complex offering individual and group reading halls, workshop and event spaces, and a centre designed specifically for people with disabilities, along with talks, seminars, exhibitions and other presentations.

Catering to a wide range of users – from children and teens to university students and academics – the Library serves readers and researchers around the clock with 24-hour reading rooms.
