A new library called Romafuturismo has been open in Prague focusing on emancipation of discriminated ethnic groups and cultures. The collection of books by Roma authors is gradually extending thanks to Ladislava Gažiová who consults the selection of books with Roma experts and activists. Her main aim is to collect books by European authors but she also purchases books by non-European writers. There are books on Roma culture, emancipation and postcolonial thinking applicable to Roma issues.

The library may be regarded also as a place where people can meet and discuss different cultural and political topics or introduce writers and Roma personalities. The principal task of the library is to involve Roma communities and encourage them to play the main role in various discussions.
