"Stroe S. Belloescu" City Library building was built one hundred years ago. Stroe S. Belloescu philanthropist whose name it has the present institution, came up with the initiative to build a building to serve as headquarters of the municipal library.

Until 1950 the two institutions have co-existed, and subsequently was provided another space for the museum. Thus, the library and the museum were the first cultural institutions in the city of Vaslui. In the library building also functioned Academy of Barlad Cultural Society and Athenaeum and the Stroe Belloescu National House Association of Reading.

From the documents stored no longer is found the document in which the author of the architectural project is mentioned. It is possible that the model was inspired by Italian architects projects because there was no school of architects in Romania at that time. The building was built on an area of 300 sqm, neoclassical style, typical to the nineteenth century, but with some elements of the architecture of Moldavia.

Respecting tradition, the library of Barlad always organizes cultural activities in the reading room: symposiums, exhibitions of books, literary and musicalmedallions, book launches, meetings with personalities in the cultural field.
