Aisulu Maksotova

"Please don't shelve the books by yourself! Just leave them on teh table!" I remember that during my first year as a foundation students in the library, I used to think that something was wrong with this instruction or my with my English. I thought books are not going to be shelved by themselves and I would always put them in the right places. Now working in the library, I believe that I am very fort unable to have discovered this place and people who work here. I am very glad to have a chance to gain new experience in this quite, beautiful and magical place full of books with its invaluable and hardworking employees."
