Metropolitan Ervin Szabó Library

Fővárosi Szabó Ervin Könyvtár (literally Metropolitan Ervin Szabó Library) is the largest library network in Budapest, Hungary.

In 2003, FIABCI awarded the Prix d’Excellence to its central building, with the following description:

Originally housed in the 19th century historic Wenckheim Palace, the municipal library needed more space as its collection grew and plans were made to link it to new buildings while restoring the palace as a national monument. The modernised library now covers around 13,000 m² and houses Budapest's largest public collection of books with a capacity for 1,100,000 volumes. [1]
