Mykonos Municipal Library

The library’s foundation in 1957 was sponsored by the Mykonian historian Ioannis Meletopoulos. It includes 6.000 volumes from the personal collection of Meletopoulos, as well as books from other donators. The library now has 11.500 volumes in total. It is housed in a well-maintained house of 1735 which belonged to Dimitrios Mavrogenis, who was the brother of Wallachia’s ruler Nikolaos Mavrogenis, the voivode (governor) of Mykonos and the grandfather of Manto Mavrogenous. You will find a notable collection of ancient coins and old seals in the library, along with a part of Mykonos’s historical archive (with documents from 1830 to 1940). The correspondence of Manto Mavrogenous stands out from the rest of the old documents. Info It is located at the square of Agia Kyriaki (or Kampani). Tel.: +30 22890 27190
