This famous Soviet song is the first thing that comes to mind when they are trying to remember the main school textbook, the first book which opens the door in the world of knowledge.

You could also see the famous ABC-book, “Bukvar” by Anatoly Klyshko. I was published in 1969 for the first time, than it was reprinted 23 times in the Belarusian, Russian and Polish. The newest "generation" of ABC-books is represented by edition, prepared by Olga Tsirinova.

To fully immersion into the "wonderful school years", the exhibition also represents the other artifacts of school life: old diaries and notebooks, as well as unknown to modern pupils instruments for writing.

The opening of the exhibition was attended by Alexander Susha, Deputy Director of the National Library of Belarus for Research and Publishing; Valentina Ginchuk, Deputy Director of the National Institute of Education; Natalia Zhdanovich, Dean of the Faculty of Primary Education of Belarusian State Pedagogical University named after Maxim Tank.
