Abstract:Abstract This paper presents an overview of the development of Kosovan libraries and literature between the years 1990 to 1999, one of the most difficult decades in the county’s history. During this time, both Kosovo’s libraries and its Albanian people suffered under the effects of extreme political unrest. In addition to analyzing this period of social turmoil, the paper provides a brief history of Kosovan libraries, the oppression of the Albanians during the 1998–1999 war in Kosovo, and an overview of the country’s contemporary libraries and their vision for the future.
