Long Description:

Biblioteka Raczyńskich w Poznaniu - pierwsza miejska biblioteka w mieście. Została utworzona przez hr. Edwarda Raczyńskiego jako część planowanego kulturalnego zespołu w centrum Poznania. Projekt budynku został wykonany najpewniej przez architektów napoleońskich Charlesa Perciera oraz Pierra Fontaine'a ok. 1820 roku. Rok później hrabia zakupił ziemię od władz pruskich przy obecnym placu Wolności, by w kolejnym mogła rozpocząć się budowa, która trwała 6 lat (1822-1828).

The Raczyński Library in Poznań is the first municipal library in the city. It was established by Earl Edward Raczyński as a part of the planned cultural complex in the center of Poznań. The design of the building was probably made by Napoleonic architects Charles Percier and Pierre Fontaine around 1820. A year later, the Count purchased a plot of land from the Prussian authorities at the present Liberty Square, so that construction could begin the next year, which lasted six years (1822-1828).
