The vernissage opens the exhibition season 2018 of the Library. It is the result of the large-scale action devoted to the 60th anniversary of the start of the first Earth satellite.

The history of the action is very interesting: in 2017 the initiative group of pupils of the comprehensive school No. 1 named after the first builder of Baikonur G.M. Shubnikov took the initiative to prepare the drawings devoted to the significant date. Then the action was joined by the pupils of the educational organizations of the city of Baikonur under the jurisdiction of the Republic of Kazakhstan. As a result, Baikonur’s school children prepared more than 5 and a half thousand drawings.

Considering the special status of «Baikonur» complex working in two legal frameworks, the children decided to send their works to the Presidents of Kazakhstan and Russia. To deliver drawings to Astana and Moscow is the process which symbolically designates the start of the satellite and its place into orbit. Some drawings will be presented at the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation in Moscow.

The collection of 200 drawings was sent to the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan - Elbassy N.A. Nazarbayev. All drawings will be presented to the general public of Astana at the vernissage in the building of the museum of the Library of Elbassy within the project «View from childhood».
