Libraries across Turkey contained nearly 69.3 million books as of the end of 2018, the country's statistical authority reported Thursday.

"The number of university libraries increased by 6% in 2018 compared to 2017 and reached to 598," TurkStat said.
Official figures also revealed that university libraries across the country had 17.6 million books, around 1.7 million bound periodicals, 92 million electronic books, over 700,000 theses, and some 1.2 million other materials.
TurkStat will release next report on libraries in July 2020. -
