On April 16th, 1917, a patriotic and distinguished intellectual, Hil Mosi, established in Shkodra the Library of Albanology, which served as the nucleus for the establishment of the National Library. In 1920, this library was placed to the capital of the Albanian state, which was being reborn and, beginning in late 1922, was officially called the “National Library”, a name still holds today. At that time it had a fund of 6000 volumes.
