Cieszyn has nurtured many enlightened people who have sacrifi ced their time and effort
on developing education. The multiculturalism of the people living there has inspired the
research and exploration of knowledge of folklore and folk art in the artistic, musical and
literary aspects. In this context, the Music Institute strongly refl ects its presence educating
future teachers, organists, members of folk bands, and small instrumental formations.
In response to the demands of teachers and youth educators, the library collects relevant
literature. Its collection has contemporary works, as well as many unique journal titles from
the early 20th century. The collection of sheet music and audio documents (CDs) is extensive.
