The new library premises are dedicated to Peppino Impastato, a mafia victim. 

The library is situated on the ground floor of the Quartiere 4 building and was inaugurated in July 2010. The ample space, 130 square metres, is accessible to the disabled and has two areas for study and consultation and one for children and adolescents. On one inside wall of the library is a drawing by Maja Celia, a famous Slovenian illustrator.
