Magic of the Needle – Poetry of the SoulLovely women, dear colleagues!
We congratulate you on the wonderful holiday – the 8th of March!

We wish you warmth of the heart, good health, spring mood, happiness, love, well-being, creative inspiration! On the occasion of the Spring holiday in the reading room of social and human sciences a hobby-exhibition "Magic of the Needle – Poetry of the Soul" was prepared.
Embroidering is an ancient art, which is appreciated, passed down from generation to generation, carefully guarded. The beauty of each embroidered work either with threads or beads, is unique, and the embroidery technique itself with its varieties has a lot of centuries. Embroidered pictures and embroidered things never lose their popularity. And it is clear why. On the one hand, embroidering is an art, on the other – it is a hobby which is available for everyone to embody his or her vision of beauty. It can be done without special knowledge, only the desire to embroider is enough.
Embroidering is a flight of the soul when there is a desire to create and give their fine art to acquaintances, friends and relatives. At the exhibition the works of our colleagues Janina Stets and Olga Syuh are presented.
The exhibition includes pictures of floral motifs. These works captivate with the range of colors and craftsmanship that is conveyed through the composition of the embroidery.
Each work is like a holiday! It is a charming music of nature, the world of good and beauty in "the arm of flower tenderness". We invite you to our reading room (room number 406) to get acquainted with the exhibition and we hope that handicraft beauty of our colleagues raise your mood!
The material and the exhibition were prepared by the librarian of the 1st category Olga Syuh. We sincerely thank our colleagues Anna Abramova and Janina Stets.

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.
When the time came to receive the authorizations to the apartments, almost all future residents were in despair: "We waited, waited, and we have to live under the grave ...".  Prejudices are firmly rooted in our thinking: to make life more fun, street names should be light and bright, "Solnechnaya", "Yablochnaya", "Malinovaya", for example, and not named after V.Podmogilny, unknown to us at that time.
