The Franciszek Karpiński Institute of Regional Culture and Literary Research (Instytut Kultury Regionalnej i Badań Literackich im. Franciszka Karpińskiego) is a scientific organization that brings together people of science, culture, and business.
The Institute’s academic and organizational potential is reflected in numerous monographs and journal: „Inskrypcje” – the B List of MNiSW (affiliated to IKRiBL). We publish in various languages: English, Russian, German, Ukrainian, and Polish. The IKR[i]BL Publishing House also publishes literary texts (poetry, prose, essays).
The Institute annually organizes many international and nationwide conferences and academic seminars.
The Institute hosts the Jan Amos Komeński Public Library. Its collections were obtained mainly from Poland and Germany.
