Korgialenios Library-Culture Museum

Along the street is the Korgialenios library and the Culture Museum. Founded in 1924, it houses over 6000 volumes which list most of the material includin the days before the earthquake. There are several manuscripts and rare editions such as the ‘Dictionary of Souida’ the oldest existing Encyclopaedia that is thought to be a couple of thousand years old, made with ancient and medieval material.

The ground floor is the Culture Museum, which was founded in 1962 by Helen M. Kosmetatou and it began operating in 1966 with some money given by Evaggelos Bassias. The purpose of the museum was to preserve the memory of Kefalonia before the devastating earthquake of 1953 and it houses material from the early 15th century up until 1848. Culture elements such as china, silverware, embroidery, Kefalonian art, lithographs, utensils, sculptures, tools, coins and some 3,000 photographs, and an old style bedroom, set out with the hope of sending the visitor to live briefly in a time with a strong culture.
