On February 14, on the International Book Donation Day in Kazakhstan, a large-scale campaign "Give books with love" ended.

It started on February 7 at one of the largest leisure venues in Astana ‒ the Arman cinema. The participants of the solemn ceremony were more than 200 metropolitan schoolchildren ‒ participants of the action. The Russian House in Astana and the Centralized Library System of the capital made a great gift to the children – they organized a screening of the new Russian film "Cheburashka".

During the week, amazing meetings were held in Astana from acquaintance with the literature of different countries. For example, on February 11, a truly fabulous morning turned out in the capital's Mass Library No. 12. The wife of the Palestinian diplomat Aigul Shaheen introduced young readers to the Arabic folk tale "The Silent Princess" and told about the traditions and customs of the peoples of the Middle East.


Russian Russian literature days followed in the capital (the head of the Russian House in Astana, Olga Filonova, read the Tale of the Fisherman and the Fish to the pupils of the kindergarten "Umit"); Belarusian books (the wife of the Ambassador of Belarus to Kazakhstan, Alexandrina Yupina, introduced the capital's schoolchildren to the works of Yanka Kupala, Yakub Kolos, Maxim Tank, revealed to them the beauty of the Blue-eyed) and the day of Kazakh literature, in which the famous writer Dina Oraz read her fairy tales "Where does the unicorn live?" and "Who treats the teeth of lions?" to the kids.

During the campaign, more than 1,500 books were collected. The Russian House, together with the Representative Office of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in Kazakhstan, transferred more than 200 books to the Mass Library No. 12 alone. The books were also transferred to the school libraries of Aktobe region, Atyrau, Astana, Stepnogorsk, Temirtau, Petropavlovsk, Taraz, Kokshetau and other cities.
