Tashkent State Public Library of the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic recently celebrated its 75th anniversary. Founded in 1870, it is now an important centre of culture and science in the Soviet East. The years of the library's existence may be divided into two periods, each differing widely from the other. Until the revolution, the library was hardly ever used by the local population, but by officials of the Tsarist administration, and Russian officers.
