The Elpinikeios Library is located in the town of Nicosia. It took its name from the teacher Epiniki Papadopoulou , to whom the lodge belonged to and it is  under the cultural services of the Ministry of education and Culture.  The lodge was donated by Elpiniki herself while she was alive in order to create this library.
