Transneft East participated in Bratsk contest The Family Reading Most of All. The event, timed to the International Reading Day, was conducted in the Russian poetry library named after Viktor Serbskii.
The campaign The Family Reading Most of All is oriented to popularization of reading, first of all, among children and teenagers. This year nine families from Bratsk participated in the campaign. Each team prepared its presentation speaking about the family library. The event was devoted to the Year of Ecology. The questions of the quiz concerned the works of famous Russian poets and writers: Mikhail Prishvin, Vitaly Bianki, Afanasy Fet, Konstantin Paustovsky and others. Young participants competed in performance of the tasks based on children's literature about the nature.
According to Ekaterina Serbskaia, head of the library, the family reading contest is conducted for the second time and has already got its permanent participants. Following the results of the campaign, all the teams received thematic gifts: books, electronic data storage devices.
Transneft East collaborates with the centralized library system (CLS) of Bratsk for 5 years. The building of the Russian poetry library was reconstructed in 2014 with the enterprise’s support. Besides, special equipment was purchased at the expense of the company for a centre for people with visual problems organized at one of the CLS branches. Transneft East also participates in financing of the large-scale all-Russian project Total Dictation.
In 2015 the main library of Bratsk obtained the unique facsimile edition of the Illustrated Chronicle of Ivan the Terrible consisting of 34 parts.
