“Nowy Dziennik” - a Zionist daily magazine, issued in the interwar period in Cracow, earned its place among the legendary titles of Polish and Jewish magazine history. Jewish press issued between 1918-1939 is a valuable piece of evidence today, documenting the presence of Jewish people on the Polish ground. It presents the development of the political, cultural, literary and most of all, social life. In the history of Polish Zionist press, it left a m ark of a characteristic climate of the age and the way of life of Jews in Poland. The main goal of the authors was to present the place of the librarian, publishing and press problems on the pages of “Nowy Dziennik”. The work includes an analysis of the paper’s contents. On the basis of the conducted studies, it has been proven that the cultural theme, narrowed down to the thematic problems, has been a constant point of interest, though its intensity was dependent on various factors. The use of the study material was dictated by the repeatability of the issues or their unique importance. It was impossible, to discuss all the collected data. Although “Nowy Dziennik” undoubtedly deserves a full monograph, the authors limited themselves to the selected aspects, which surely do not tell much about the general character of the magazine. Because of that, the image of the daily magazine from Cracow is fragmentary. The work is divided into parts devoted to: “Nowy Dziennik” in general, the issue of libraries on its pages, and further on the publishing houses and bookstores, which he described. Another part comprises the issues of the press registered and described by the publicists of “Nowy Dziennik”, and the last one presents information on the promotion of the books present in the paper. The work starts with an introduction, which includes information on the Jewish people in Cracow between 1918-1939, and ends with research conclusions. The bulk of the work comprises chapters on the issues of libraries and press in “Nowy Dziennik”. All of the analyzed issues indicate th a t the material published in “Nowy Dziennik” was targeted at educated readers with vast interests, mostly men, but with time there were more and more content directed at women. When in 1928 Paulina Appenszlakowa started editing the women magazine, “Ewa”, “Nowy Dziennik” started issuing a women-directed supplement, “Glos Kobiety”.
