The Library of the Serbian Orthodox Eparchy of Buda consists of different library units and collections. In addition to contemporary works constantly increasing in number, the Library also holds closed groups of books, the private libraries of individual bishops, such as Arsenije Stojković (1804-1892), Georgije Zubković (1878-1951) and Danilo Krstić (1927-2002), as well as other smaller collections and groups. Collections of books classified as protected even within the holdings of the Museum constitute a distinct section of the Library, representing library material of particular importance. In this category, of outstanding significance are – first and foremost – the Manuscript Collection, spanning the 18th-19th-century period, as well as the Collection of Old Printed Serbian Books, the Collection of 17th-19th-Century Church Slavonic Books and – last but not least – the Library of the Monastery of Grábóc.
