5.3.4 Literature and libraries
Hungary has no separate Law to support literature and writers.
The cause of libraries is regulated in detail by Acts CXL/1997 and XX/1991, the latter stipulating that local governments are obliged to assure library supply, with special regard to youth and cultural minorities. In settlements with a few hundred inhabitants only, the local governments fulfil this obligation by reaching joint agreements with neighbouring towns or villages. The scheme of public lending right payments has not yet been introduced.
