How do you usually choose a book to read? Title, author, annotation, cover design… – what do you pay attention to?
Imagine a book wrapped in eco-paper – no information about the author or title, just a few words why this book is worth reading.
This is exactly what we have done with book gifts from our partner and friends – business founders, experts in various fields, business coaches, interesting people who love to read and share books that can change lives for the better.
For the All-Ukrainian Day of Libraries, each of them presented #kpilibrary books that impressed them, inspired them, or are must-read for everyone, the best they have read lately…
Here are the books you will find on the 30th of September in the KPI Library – modern, cool, with hidden covers – in short, «secret»;) Come and choose a book to read on the recommendation of an interesting person.
Look for a stand with secret books on the 1st floor – all books we will put on you reader’s ID card.
We are waiting for you on 30th of September from 10 am.

With the beginning of the new school year, we continue the educational cycle of lectures «Stories about the life of old textbooks». As part of the cycle, we talk about the interests of the fund of rare and valuable publications, about old textbooks and manuals.
The next lecture will be devoted to various findings in books. During ten years, many of them have been collected and each can tell interesting historical facts.
Old photos, negatives, transport tickets, flip calendar sheets, student letters, invitations, exam admissions, library cards and book orders… And many of these documents are directly related to Kyiv Polytechnic.
We invite everyone to join the study of the history of the university through acquaintance with library rarities.
The lecture will take place on the Zoom platform on 28th of September at 19:00 subject to prior registration.

MuzKlas is back!
This time the topic of the meeting will be «Eric Sati’s Music Revolution».

Visit MusicClass and feel the exquisite carnival action that lasts a lifetime, where music was only one of the components.

Another screening from PostArt!
This time it is dedicated to the memory of Jean-Paul Belmondo! We will watch the movie «Le Magnifique».
Director: Philippe de Brock
Starring: Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jacqueline Bisset. Belmondo and director Philippe de Brock decided to make fun of «Bondian», and at the same time the usual roles of the actor.

The character of Belmondo in the film is witty and sensitive, and we want to remember him that way. Join us!

Why read fiction? To be ready for today. Whatever is unbelievable and terrible in our lives – we will not fall into a stupor, because we have already read about it. Fiction is like a vaccine for all mankind. Many things without which we cannot imagine our lives were once fantastic. We have already talked about the history of the genre, recalled the forgotten and almost forgotten authors, introduced to the classic works.
Join us to
- Follow the development of fiction genres;
- Hear about how ideas were formed, changed and what they came up with;
- Learn about the path of literature from myth (the first and the oldest form of fiction) and the Bible – the first science fiction book, to «American Gods» by Neil Gaiman, and how the images of gods and heroes have changed during this time.
Come to the Fantastic Course meeting with your ideas and topics for conversation.
