The Marussya Assaubayeva Foundation will build a state-of-the-art library in Kazakhstan’s oil capital


ALMATY, Kazakhstan, March 04, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Marussya Assaubayeva Foundation, a charity focused on developing social and cultural projects in Kazakhstan, will build a library at the country’s main oil and gas university. The new facility will provide Atyrau University of Oil and Gas students with a comfortable, state-of-the-art space to study, as well as access to specialist literature and international industry-focused periodicals. The library is expected to open later this year.

Located on the border of Europe and Asia, Atyrau is home to two major universities, no less than ten professional establishments and numerous schools. Every year, hundreds of students come to Atyrau from all over the country to continue their studies. Recognizing the scientific abilities of young people today and their desire for quality education, the Foundation decided to build a state-of-the-art library at the Atyrau University of Oil and Gas, the educational institution most prestigious in the country specializing in the field.

With a total area of ​​2,177 square meters, the new library will be a multifunctional educational space that will combine infrastructure for access to knowledge and information; tools for communication, study, creativity and leisure; and equipment for creating and consuming content (multimedia, text and graphics). In fact, it will be an information-oriented facility that will allow all residents of the city to engage in educational activities. The multifunctional library will provide online access to the libraries of the best technical universities in the world. The additions to the university’s stock of books will make it one of the largest in the country.

When looking for a building for the future library, it was important to take into account not only the architectural and functional aspects of the site but also its geographical location. The Foundation finally opted for the building of the former student center of Atyrau.

The spatial solutions for the Library will create a comfortable and intellectually rich environment that will be conducive both to the in-depth study of a variety of subjects and to the exchange of ideas. The library will also play an important role in the infrastructure of the city of Atyrau, being a place where students can chart their future paths in a comfortable and modern environment.
