This library is the descendant of the Central Ukrainian Library founded in Moscow in the 1920s and closed in 1938. It was re-opened in December 1989 with the help of the Moscow Ukrainian Youth Club and a firm called Ukrainian Publicity. The library contains more than 13,000 books and 8,500 periodicals, as well as audio and video recordings and music collections. Besides its collections of books in Ukrainian and Russian, the library also has holdings in Polish, English, German, French and other languages. A computer hook-up to the Internet allows readers to access from Moscow the catalogues of almost any library in the U.S. The library is trying, without success so far, to reclaim the building which housed its collection in the twenties and thirties. The regular library hours are:
