The heart of the English Library collection consists of documents purchased with the support of the British Council in Prague from 2002–2015. These are marked on the back with a British flag and inside with a British Council label. Other books are usually obtained as gifts.
All documents are available to be borrowed and taken home, except those marked with a yellow stripe and used for study in the library.
• fiction - prose, poetry, plays, easy reading, bilingual fiction (classified by the first two letters of the author’s surname)
