Exhibitions mark Day of First President
A large-scale exhibition has opened at the National Academic Library that allows the visitors to learn about the Kazakh President’s biography. The items reveal facts of Nursultan Nazarbayev’s childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and activities on the post of the president. The exhibition consists of five sections. Readers can also learn about the Kazakh President’s personal works. For example, his book "Kazakhstan's Way" has received acclaim with international readers and has been translated into more than 30 languages.
Aiman KUSSAINOVA, LIBRARIAN, NATIONAL ACADEMIC LIBRARY:
We present the most interesting facts about the Kazakh President’s life and work. Behind the success of any person, first of all, there is his family, his childhood, his education and environment. All the interesting facts that we found in the books about the President, we have tried to present to our readers.
A large part of the exhibition consists of the books about Astana and the role of the President in its formation and prosperity.
Sadybek TUGEL, WRITER:
Nursultan Nazarbayev is the author of the idea, he is the main organizer, the chief architect, and so he is the main character of all my books.
