It is located in the capital Pristina and is named after the Albanian Catholic author Pjetër Bogdani . The BKK houses a large collection of historical and cultural works that deal with Kosovo and its people. The library is an important location for Albanology .
The national library was founded in 1944 and was initially located in Prizren, southern Kosovo . It was not until 1982 that she moved into today's building in the city center right next to the University of Prishtina , which is architecturally unique in Kosovo, but also in all of Southeast Europe . The building complex has 99 domes and is clad with steel elements. It was designed by the Yugoslav architect Andrija Mutnjaković (* 1929).
