Zagreb City Libraries (ZCL) are a network of modern and well-organized public libraries, and one of the largest cultural institutions in Zagreb, the Croatian capital city. On educational and cultural level Zagreb City Libraries coordinate and participate in many regional and national initiatives and programs, and they connect librarians from different library types. Zagreb City Libraries are one of the founders of The Training Centre for Continuing Education of Librarians in Republic Croatia, coordinate a several national reading programs and portal, and established National Quiz forReading Encouragement, which is organized in hundreds of public and school libraries in Croatia and Librarian experts from Zagreb City Libraries, in collaboration with programmers and IT experts of VIVA info Ltd, developed a software ZaKi for interconnected system support for library management. During 2015, ZaKi was used by 139 public, 70 school, 5 university and 22 special libraries in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina working in one network, jointly making normative and bibliographic data bases. This paper aims to present methods used by Zagreb City Libraries that collaborate with different types of libraries, in order to distribute knowledge, information and initiatives, thus empowering the community and improving library system in Zagreb and Croatia.
