On Valerian Pidmohylny Street (To the 120th anniversary of his birth)
There is a street in our city where only two houses are built. This is in the neighborhood of the former tire factory. People had been queuing for their apartments for over twenty years. They already lost hope for housewarming parties, then the Union collapsed and the plant was at death's door. Somehow "the stars came together", the plant's management, headed by V.A. Tyutin coped with building of these two buildings.
We truly thank everyone who supported our library during the year!
Especially to our numerous donators, whose respectful attitude to the book
contributed to the qualitative replenishment of our collections.
