On February 13, 2019, within the framework of the “Blue Suitcase” project, the specialists of the National Library of Uzbekistan visited the secondary school No. 110 of the Mirabad district of Tashkent city. The blue suitcase came to class in 3 "H". Library experts talked on the theme “A casket of wisdom,” dedicated to the fables of Ivan Andreevich Krylov. The event is dedicated to the 250th anniversary of the Russian writer-fabulist I.A.Krylov.
Specialists of the National Library of Uzbekistan M. Muratova and K. Nuritdinova talked with students about the life and work of I. Krylov and told about the educational significance of his fables. The chief specialist of the reading room service M. Muratova noted that Krylov was not only a poet, but also a librarian and asked whether the children had a library at home and how many books they had. “Did you know that the National Library of Uzbekistan stores over 7 million books. It collects and stores works of print and writing, which are the national treasure and cultural heritage of our people. Ivan Andreevich Krylov was also a librarian. The St. Petersburg Public Library still holds bibliographic cards written by his hand. But even then, he wrote poetry, especially fables. Guys, let's remember today some of Krylov's fables, and maybe in the heroes of fables you recognize your friends or acquaintances, and maybe yourself.”
Reading Krylov's fables by heart, the students revealed their morality and talked about its educational value. They also said that in the reading lesson they studied the following fables: “Dragonfly and Ant”, “Crow and Fox”, “Swan, Pike and Cancer”, “Monkey and Glasses”, “Siskin and Dove” in which they learned to border the concepts of "good" and "bad."
Pupils who distinguished themselves by expressive reading and artistry received prizes from the National Library of Uzbekistan.
