The personality of the writer has recently become especially relevant.

Now, the National Library has joined the celebration of the cause of perpetuating the memory of Zmitrok Byadulya, having created a virtual section of the project "On the Waves of Time throughout Life" dedicated to the anniversary of the writer.
