The donation of a library constitutes an indisputable fact, pure and fair benefaction. The life and ethos of the same benefactor, the late Metropolitan of Servia and Kozani Dionysus, stood by the study of books, and transferred from his own writings to the people of Kozani. The same person believed that a book is not valuable as a physical object, but rather the value is what the reader draws by reading it. Therefore, he bequeathed his collections, the content and size of which all the Kozanites in his flock recognized in 1995, and with the proclamation of Kozani as the city of books, continued in the tradition of enriching the local library with important donations by eminent men.
