In 1952 when the library was moved to Cekin Castle the collection consisted of 1,559 items of post-war and 14,688 items of German literature. In 1992 when Cekin Castle was reorganised its library had 8,000 items.
Today it covers an area of 181 square metres and incorporates a collection of 20,000 books, 145 periodical titles, 450 partisan periodical titles and numerous posters, much of the material having been donated. Intensive digitalisation of the holdings has been implemented since 1995. The library supports museum research work, and consequently its collection items often feature as a part of exhibitions, both in Slovenia and abroad.
