Resolution of September 3, 2021 No. 1478

More than 1.9 billion rubles will be additionally allocated to the regions for updating libraries, replenishing book collections, as well as purchasing equipment for children’s theaters. This order was signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

Of this amount, 1 billion rubles is allocated for the modernization of libraries. With the help of federal funding, at least 150 municipal libraries will be refurbished to a model standard in 2021.

550 million rubles are provided for replenishment of book funds. This money will be used to purchase at least 1 million units of book products. The provision of state support for the purchase of new books was not provided for in the current state programs. Now the need for such funding is indicated in the state program “Development of Culture”. The resolution on this was also approved by the Government.

The rest of the funds allocated by the federal center – 380 million rubles – will be directed to the technical equipment of children’s theaters. The new equipment will appear at at least 30 regional sites.

The second document will be published.
