On June, 11th the staff members of the Library gave a class of Young Historian Summer School for the 7th and 8th grade students of the Cadets Corps at the Ministry of Defense of Russia Boarding School for Girls.


The students of the 9th and 10th grade of the Boarding School had previously visited the Library during the exposition commemorated to the beginning of the World War I “From Russia to warrior host”. This time E.E. Shumyantseva, Head of the Cultural Programs Department, acquainted the girls with the history of the Library and the exposition of the Reader’s Museum. K.V.

The students and their teachers greatly appreciated the opportunity given by the Library to know more about their country and asked us to continue giving such interesting and useful classes next academic year.
