On December 6, the opening ceremony of the Model Central Library was held in Satka. 

Satka District received congratulations on this remarkable event from First Deputy Minister of Culture Irina Anfalova-Shishkina, Director of the Regional Public Library Natalia Diskaya, as well as Heads of Cultural Departments and Municipal Libraries of Kusa, Zlatoust, Miass and Asha.

It is worth noting that Satka is one of the first cities to have a library of this kind. Modernization of libraries and creation of new-generation model libraries is one of the priority directions of the national Culture Project. The central library of Satka District also has a renovation project prepared by the employees of the Higher School of Economics and Strelka Institute with the support of Sobranie Fund. The project will be brought to life in the nearest years. The first steps have already been taken with the assistance of the Ministry of Culture of the Chelyabinsk Region. The funds allocated from the region were used to partially upgrade IT facilities and library furniture.

660 model municipal libraries in total are planned to be created in the Chelyabinsk Region to improve the quality of library services.

The library upgrade has created a space for reading and learning, which is intended to completely change the attitude to the library: from a place where one can get a book to a center of newsworthy events, film screenings, discussions, lectures, workshops, performances and conferences.
