Give a Book to the LibraryFor the All-Ukrainian Day of Libraries, the SumDU Library has launched a campaign "Give a Book to the Library". This is a voluntary initiative aimed at increasing interest and access to books. The purpose of the event is to inspire people to donate a book to the library and allow other readers to get to know your preferences.

If your home library has textbooks, dictionaries, fiction, or books in foreign languages that you no longer need, they will find their reader in the library.

PortaOne for LibraryIn early 2020, as a gift from PortaOne, SumDU Library received modern books on IT, which will help students and teachers to learn the most popular programming languages, learn about the universal rules of software architecture, explore the theory of database systems. You can view the publication in the reading room of the Central Library (LIC-305).
