Τhe Municipal Library of Naoussa was founded in 1979. It was temporarily housed at the Cultural Center of Naoussa and, during the period from 1980 to 1981, it was transferred to restored building at Solomou 3 where it operated until recently. Today, the Library is located in the building of the cultural center Vetlans-Naias.
The Public Library currently possesses 20,000 volumes and includes all categories of knowledge (history, sociology, Greek and foreign literature, poetry, ancient Greek literature, children books etc.), encyclopedias, dictionaries, an archive of local newspapers and magazines as well as an archive of the local history. The books are classified according to the Decimal Classification System (DEWEY), which applies to almost all libraries in the world and there has been a computerized recording of the material, in its larger part through the program ABEKT (Library Automation System of the National Documentation Center).
There is cooperation and communication of the Municipal Library with many libraries across Greece in the context of exchange of information and data.
More than 11,000 books are borrowed annually, while its members have surpassed 4,500 since 1994, when it turned into a lending library. Registered members of the Municipal Library are authorized to use the internet. There are considerable donations of books and printed material (newspaper supplements and magazines) by John Boutaris and the late Achilleas Gkoutas and Angelos Valtadoros.
Also, there have been donations from associations such as: the Fytraki publishing Company, the Federation of Publishers and Booksellers of Greece, the Greek Parliament, the Library of the Academy of Athens, the Society for Macedonian Studies, the Ministry of Public Order, the Foundation of Olympic and Sport Education, the Foundation Fany Boutari, the P.E.A.E.A. of publishers etc. and, finally, donations from individual readers - Library users who contribute to the enrichment of the collection.
Purchases of books are conducted by grants from the municipality and the Ministry of Education.
In the context of promoting reading and increasing readership, given that the love of books starts from a young age, the Municipal Library of Naoussa organizes activities related to books in collaboration with teachers and various institutions, trying to approach students of kindergartens, primary schools and high schools. These events take place on the occasion of World Children's Book Day (April 2) World Environment Day (5 June), World Children’s Day (December 11) and on other occasions.
