 On November 7, the scientific library was visited by two groups of students of the 8th grade of Dnipro Lyceum of Information Technologies at DNU. A cheerful youthful crowd filled the wide lobby of the library, and as the excursion began, the first noise was gradually replaced by the silence of interest. Young visitors saw the first books of Katerynoslav, namely encyclopedias, scientific publications and textbooks of the late 19th century on history, geography, mathematics etc. The oldest books, which were lifetime editions of Taras Shevchenko and Ivan Kotlyarevsky dating back to the 16th - 17th centuries, were presented to the students.


Autumn. A moving time ...

Yellow leaves burning with gold glitter, maples burning with crimsom and red bunches of mountain ash trees.
Autumn fascinates us with bright colors and beautiful lyric poems.
A book-illustrated exhibition "Colorful Autumn" and a book-illustrated installation "Magical Autumn Visited Us" are presented in the reading room of social sciences and humanities.
Welcome to the exhibition (room 406, 4th floor). We are sure everyone will feel light sadness and slight nostalgia, the sun through clouds, colorful chrysanthemums and yellow leaves, bright spider webs of Indian summer, which, like silver strings, are touched by the wind and a magic symphony, which can be called one word Autumn will sound ...
And just in the library the autumn depressing mood is changed to the real autumn mood. Everyone will choose a book for himself and the autumn will get warmer. Welcome!

The material was prepared by A.N. Sukh (reading room of social sciences and humanities)
