Палешева Елена Аркадьевна
Kirov, the former Vyatka, is one of the Russian cities in 900 km from Moscow. The history of Kirov is closely connected with the name of A. I. Hertsen, a prominent Russian writer, philosopher and a progressive public figure. On April 6, 2012 Russia celebrates his 200th anniversary. The residents of Kirov remember Hertsen because he made a lot for the enlightenment of the people of old Vyatka during his exile in 1835-1838. The Library was founded in 1837 with his active participation. Nowadays A. I. Hertsen Regional Scientific Library is one of the oldest, richest and most respected libraries in Russia. More than 35.000 readers visit the Library annually.
The Hertsen Library possesses more than 4 million items including 53.320 ones in many foreign languages. It can boast of unique collections of Russian and foreign books published in the 16th-18th centuries. You may see a collection of ancient manuscripts and religious books, miniature editions, books with autographs. The library has unique literature about regional history and nature, a large collection of local press editions. You can find rare and valuable books and periodicals on any subject you like.
The department of foreign literature is very rich and it can be called the pride of the library. The department arranges different exhibitions, conferences and meetings. A very interesting exhibition was organized to the 200th anniversary of the greatest English writer Charles Dickens where you could see and touch books printed in different foreign languages dating back to the 19th-20th centuries. German learners and literature lovers visit German Cultural Centre. Not long ago an American Corner was opened in the Regional Library. Its activity attracts a lot of people who are interested in learning English.
