The Philological Library was established in 1954 through the unification of the library collections of several of the oldest seminar libraries at Sofia University - Slavic Seminar (founded in 1905), Seminar in Comparative Literary History (1911), Seminar on German, French and English Philology (1924), and the library at the Department of Linguistics. In 1969 was opened a large Student Reading Room with 175 reading places. In 1980, after renovation work and installation of new equipment, the library at the Faculty of Classical and Modern Philology moved to its current premises. In 2012 the Philological Library was completely renovated through the financial support under the EU Operational Programme Regional Development 2007-2013 of the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works.
  
Today the library is the largest branch library within the structure of the University Library. Its rich holdings contain 200,000 library items (books, periodicals, reference editions, dictionaries, electronic resources) in the field of linguistics, literature, literary history, literary criticism, literature in various languages, anthropology, folklore, linguistics, psycholinguistics, hermeneutics, pragmatics, semiotics and other disciplines. It stores the personal libraries of Prof. Mosko Moskov, Ass. Prof. Albert Koshelov and Petar Uvaliev. 
 
It has 55 reading places, including 20 PC workstations.
