If you’re looking for information on Slovenia or the Slovene National Benefit Society, your first stop should be the SNPJ Slovenian Heritage Center. The Heritage Center houses an extensive library of over 2,000 volumes available for use during a visit to the center.
In addition to the SNPJ PROSVETA and Voice of Youth publications, the Heritage Center also archives a collection of Slovenian koledars (almanacs published by Slovenska Iszeljenska Matica — SIM) and Rodna Gruda magazines (the Slovenian emigrants’ magazine), a number of periodicals and unique reference materials, and telephone books that cover the entire country of Slovenia. The Heritage Center even has a complete listing of all cell phone numbers in use throughout Slovenia.
While many of these resources are published only in Slovenian, many are also published in English, and still others are offered in both the Slovenian and English languages. And if you’re looking to hone your Slovenian language skills, a Slovenian-English dictionary may be purchased at the SNPJ Slovenian Heritage Center gift shop.
