A Reading Room for children opened at Nazarbayev University

Nazarbayev University Library recently opened a Children’s Reading Room.  The room is a place for the families of students, faculty and staff to spend time together reading and working.  The room has a variety of resources that are interesting to children, so that they may read alone while their parents work on other tasks, or everyone may read and learn together as a family.  The room is open on weekdays from 8:30 am – 9:00 pm, and on weekends 11:00 am – 7:00 pm.

This is only the start of the library’s collection for children, but currently there are 553 pieces of literature in English, Kazakh, Russian, Chinese, Filipino and German languages.  NU library’s teaching and research collections are very extensive with over 180 thousand printed and electronic resources, more than 200 thousand e-books by subscription, and more than 50 thousand e-journals in English, Russian and Kazakh languages.

It is also noteworthy that the university is accepting online registration for applicants for undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs. You can find detailed information on the website apply.nu.edu.kz.
