Culture Projects

A significant part of the library's fund is compiled by publications on ethnography, religious studies, the history of the native land and the state; fiction; rare editions.
The pearl of the collection of rare editions is a facsimile of the Peresopnytsia Gospel (2008). This book is an outstanding handwritten monument of Ukrainian culture and art of the middle of the XVI century.
The Peresopnytsia Gospel is the first well-known translation of the Gospel's sacred text in the Old Ukrainian language, which was carried out in order to defend its own culture, religion, language of the Ukrainian people.


Project "Ukrainian Language: History and Present" promotes preservation of the cultural heritage and popularization of the Ukrainian language.

Within the framework of the program "Decade of the Ukrainian Language" initiated by the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in 2018, the SumDU Library holds a series of cultural and educational events and exhibitions of valuable Ukrainian-language publications for schoolchildren and students of the region.
