- In the history of each country, there are milestones that determine its fate. On such days, people make the most important historical choice for themselves. One of the main milestones for our young independent republic was December 1, 1991, when the First President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev was elected at the first popular elections. This day, which we celebrate for the eighth time as a public holiday, is a symbol of historical justice, a huge political achievement of independence and a tribute of gratitude and respect to our first Leader - Elbassy, who laid the foundation of new, independent Kazakhstan and raised the national flag high. In the Year of Youth, the Library of Elbassy held many large-scale events, and I am pleased to realize that the decade of events dedicated to the Day of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan included the project "Elbassy. Youth. Creation", organized jointly with your University, he said in his welcoming speech and congratulated all those present on the upcoming public holiday.

A. Rakhimzhanov also said that for the faculty and students of the University, the Library of Elbassy prepared a rich program, including an exhibition, a lecture and four thematic tours. Concluding his speech, A. Rakhimzhanov presented to the Library of KAZGUU University books from the collection of the Library of Elbassy, including the works of N. Nazarbayev, books by Kazakh and foreign authors about Elbassy, relevant literature on socio-political, economic and cultural topics.

- The day of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan is a special holiday for us, as our University was opened by the Decree of Nursultan Nazarbayev "in order to implement legal reform and meet the needs of the Republic in legal personnel, the development of legal education and improve its quality". For me personally, it is a great pride to host today the project dedicated to the Day of the First President, which was prepared by the Library of Elbassy. I urge the students of our University to pay special attention to the materials of the exhibition, telling the history of the formation of our state, our independence, said Chairman of the Board of KAZGUU University Talgat Narikbayev.


The first event of the information and image project was the grand opening of the complex exhibition "Elbassy. Youth. Creation" from the archival and museum collections of the Library of Elbassy, consistently covering three main topics: the history of the establishment of the Institution of presidency in the Republic of Kazakhstan, the state youth policy of Kazakhstan and the country's development strategies aimed at the future. Many exhibits are presented for the first time to a wide audience outside the walls of the Library of Elbassy.

– Thanks to the exhibits presented at this exhibition, I realized what a long way our country has come from the first days of its independence to the present day. And what great work our Elbassy has done! In the course of acquaintance with the exhibition and thematic excursions, I recalled the stages of the modern history of Kazakhstan, which we studied at school and continue to study at the University. But today I had the opportunity to see many archival documents, photos, videos, testifying to the most important milestones in the development of our state, and to feel their importance, historical significance for us all, said the 1st year student of KAZGUU University Adema Tolegenova.
