about THE library
At the heart of the project is a children's library that Tashkent residents know and remember: it has been in operation at this location since 1965. The library today has an open book collection, a public program with workshops, hobby clubs and free access to information for everyone.

The program focuses on children from 3 to 16 years old. For them, the library provides a favorable environment for study, creativity and potential development. We also believe that this is important not only for children, but also for adults, for whom there is a place and time in the library's program.
The Republican Children's Library is a modern book institution, cultural center and public space for children and adults in a historic building.
Building history
In 1965, the Republican Children's Library moved into the mansion of the Vadyayev brothers, built in the 1880s, which they sold to the city in 1909. At the same time, a building designed by architect Ivan Markevich, the future city architect of Tashkent, was added to the mansion. The building initially stood out among the others due to its architecture. In the process of reconstruction and partial restoration it was possible not only to preserve the historical and cultural heritage, but also to integrate the 19th century monument into the modern urban context. The place becomes alive and self-developing, demonstrating by its example a modern level of work with architectural heritage and rethinking public spaces.
Fund for the Development of Culture and Art
Reconstruction, relaunching and reprogramming of the Republican Children's Library was initiated by the Foundation for Development of Culture and Art. This is the first such project launched in Uzbekistan. As part of its mission, the Foundation undertakes the task of maintaining and developing the library as a modern institution of international level, actualizing its work and providing the necessary opportunities and resources for its development. The project has become a precedent for the preservation, actualization and rethinking of architectural heritage in the context of creating a modern urban public space.
