Collection

The most popular part of our library is definitely our section of English learning materials. We have many different grammar books, practice books and a good collection of adapted readers with classics of world literature adapted for different levels of learners. Some of them also include audio discs to help improve listening skills.

We also have an extensive collection of DVDs with more than 1,000 titles, both feature films and TV series in English, Russian and a few in Kazakh, many of which are sub-titled.

For expat families we have a wide range of children’s and adolescent fiction available. These books are also very helpful for students of English. For the advanced student of English we have a section with classic English fiction and a section with non-fiction books on a wide range of topics, from history to health and from business to biographies.

Another popular section is our collection of classic and modern Russian fiction, including Solzhenitsyn, Pushkin, Gogol and other famous classic writers. We also have translations of world literature, both classic and modern, like J.K. Rowling, Yann Martel, John Galsworthy and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Our library is based on the Dewey Decimal system that organizes books according to topic and/or author which makes it easier for you to find books yourself. If you can’t find a particular title or author, our librarian can search our database for you.

There’s a small collection of music CDs and audio books.

Come in and browse and read our books on-site. Or become a member and take some books and/or DVDs home.
