Present changes within the society and the changes of the functionality of particular institutions have not let the public libraries without an affect. The original library services have been widened and the main goal of libraries has moved to the position of information providers in general. The Ministry of Informatics would like to take advantage of their potential by implementing new conception of the public administration and lay hold on highly skilled staff as the contact points of e-Government with the aim to come closer to the public. Crew, thanks to their professionalism and to the librarian equipment, can provide information or even some electronic public services on a high quality level. Therefore Ministry of informatics coordinates connections of the public libraries to the intranet of public administration and work together within the project of the Public administration Portal.
