A number of the city’s officials and prominent religious figures were present at the opening ceremony.
The center, named Siraj al-Munir, will host courses on memorization of the Holy Quran, according to al-Wasat news website.
It registers men and women for taking Quranic classes in the morning and evening.
A number of the city’s Quran experts will teach the courses, which also include lessons on the principles of Tajweed.
The center was built through donations made by the people of the city and help from several governmental bodies.
Efforts to develop Quranic activities in Libya are being made despite the violence that has plagued many parts of the North African country since a NATO military intervention led to the overthrow of former dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
