The Onassis Library is housed in a neoclassical building in Plaka (Amalias Avenue 56) and accumulates the Cavafy Archive and two large collections of books: the Hellenic Library (K. Staikos' book collection) and the Travel Accounts book collection.
Vision and timeless mission of the Onassis Foundation is to release the forces of our society. Operating in the same context, the vision of the Onassis Library is to preserve and disseminate the rich cultural heritage of our country as perpetual property of the Greek Nation. The goal is to make these books accessible online not only to researchers but also to the general public.
The Onassis Library has already digitized 100,000 records of its material and has developed two digital applications for web / tablet / smartphone which are freely available through this website.
The Onassis Library is now open to the general public through the participation in its educational programs.
The Onassis Library offers organized visits addressed to academicians, students and researchers (groups of 12-40 persons). All visits are free of charge.
