Opening of the modern type library "Open space"

The opening of the library of the modern type "Open Space" took place in the Palace of Students of the Korkyt Ata Kyzylorda University.

"Open space" is a library equipped with the latest technologies, providing the teaching staff and students with domestic and foreign textbook books, suitable for meetings in various formats.

At the opening ceremony of the library, the Chairman of the Board – Rector of the Korkyt ata Kyzylorda University Beibitkul Karimova noted that the modern library will give an impetus to high-quality education and personal development of students.

- The book does not lose its value at any time. This was stated by the Head of State Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, noting that "Today, without books, as well as without libraries, successful human development is impossible. Libraries around the world are a hotbed of knowledge and culture, a place of new thoughts and opinions. Despite the rapid development of the electronic learning format, the educational role of the traditional library never loses its significance."

Over time, the opportunities that the library provides to its readers increase. To date, the book fund of the university's scientific library has more than 2 million copies of books. Every year more and more books necessary for the educational process are purchased, the number of textbooks is growing, – said Beibitkul Sarsemkhanovna.
