Vavrinec Caplovic was born in the village of Jasenova, where he also began his studies.Caplovic further visited schools in Vysny Kubin, Lestiny, Banska Bystrica and finished his studies in Kezmarok in 1798.During the years 1798 and 1810, he acted as a clerk for the Orava County and from April 1810 until the year 1852 he worked in the services of the Zichy family in Bratislava, as their secretary and keeper of their archives.
Caplovic achieved his fame by being one of the biggest collectors of books in Slovak Cultural history.His library contained around 50,000 volumes from all lines of science from the 16th century until mid 19th century, written in several European languages, mainly Latin, German and Hungarian.
Caplovic's library became famous throughout the whole of the Hungarian Empire and in 1839, he gave his rich library as a present to his natives in Orava, in order to raise their education.
In his honor the Society of Caplovic's Library was founded, and in 1907 they specially built a house in Dolny Kubin to store this library in, which is still here today.
