Facts & Figures

  • The ground floor of number 4, building 1 on Bolshaya Cherkizovskaya, where RSLYA is located, was initially intended to be a shopping space. It was given to the library in 1966.
  • RSLYA’s Historical and Cultural Centre for Young People is housed in an old wooden mansion that used to belong to a Moscow businessman, an Old Believer, Vasiliy Nosov. This Art Nouveau building was designed by Lev Kekushev in 1903 and is an object of national heritage.
  • In September 2010, RSLYA established the Comics and Visual Culture Centre (the first in Russia), part of which are the Comics Club and the Hibari Oriental Culture and Comics Club. The new Comics Room was officially opened on 16 October 2011. As of 2014, there are 4000 titles in the library’s comics collection.
  • On 15 April 2011, well-known Livejournal blogger Sergey Mukhamedov (ottenki-serogo) posted a blog entry No Tears Shed Over Books about his visit to RSLYA. The post, illustrated by many photos, drew a lot of media attention to the library. This eventually led to Dmitry Medvedev, then president of Russia, visiting the library and meeting representatives of the Russian internet community here.
  • Since the 1980s, the library has stored large collections of diapositives and slides (approx. 70 000), postage stamps (30 000) and bookplates (15 000). These items can now be considered antique because of their content and the medium itself.
