Thesis/Objective – This article provides background on Israeli society and on Jewish culture, on the basis of which the development of libraries in the State of Israel is examined. A review is provided on the various types of library: the national library, academic libraries, public libraries, and school libraries in the Jewish and Arab sectors. In addition, the institutes of professional education and the central bodies in the field are detailed: the professional organizations and the bodies of interlibrary collaborations. Research methods – literature review and content analysis. Results/Conclusions – The review presented in this paper regarded libraries both in the period preceding the proclamation of the independent state of Israel (although in brief, as a background to later developments) and from the proclamation of the state (1948) until today. This is one of the many chapters in the story of the Israeli-Jewish society, which strove to establish institutes of education and culture even before it became an independent society – and certainly afterwards.

Teza/Cel – W artykule przedstawiono podstawowe informacje na temat izraelskiego społeczeństwa i kultury, analizując w odniesieniu do nich rozwój bibliotek w Izraelu. Analiza obejmuje różne typy bibliotek: Bibliotekę Narodową, biblioteki uniwersyteckie, publiczne i szkolne zarówno w żydowskich, jak i arabskich sektorach państwa. Ponadto zaprezentowano instytucje edukacji zawodowej, organizacje bibliotekarskie i prowadzące współpracę międzybiblioteczną. Metody badań – Przegląd literatury i analiza piśmiennictwa. Wyniki/wnioski – W artykule omówiono biblioteki w Izraelu zarówno w okresie proklamowania niepodległego państwa Izrael (omówienie skrótowe, służące jako tło do dalszych analiz) jak i w okresie od proklamowania państwa (1948) do dnia dzisiejszego. Jest to jeden z rozdziałów w historii Żydów izraelskich, walczących o ustanowienie instytucji edukacyjnych i kulturalnych już przed uzyskaniem niepodległości, a niewątpliwie od momentu jej uzyskania.
