  • In the period1924–1926,two courses were organized in the local café: the first one in the popular at the time Esperanto international language conducted by Boris Peshev and attended by 35 people for six months; and the second one in bookkeeping conducted by Georgi L. Markov and Alexander Tsonev, Accountant at Bulgarian National Bank, and attended by 15 participants for three months.
  • One of the implemented methods for increasing the number of readers is the book delivery to readers, especially to children. In 1954,230 books were delivered and in the following year – 310 books; these numberswere reported insufficient. Other approaches to increasing the number of readers included repeated posting of a recommended list of newly purchased books in a visible location and a radio lecture broadcast “The Meaning of Progressive Books”. Other initiatives along these lines, like book discussions and readers’ conferences, were not implemented.

    31. 31. Instead of a conclusion – the role of partnership:Arguments from 1940 for the preservation of the chitalishte in Zlatograd: “The chitalishte and the library are a living monument of intrinsic agreement and tolerance… The chitalishte and the library are conducive to the elimination of personal selfishness. The chitalishte channels a spirit of close friendship, natural activities and a parched thirst for knowledge.” 31
    32. 32. Motives (2) from 1940 for the preservation of the chitalishte in Zlatograd (continued): “It excites citizens’ interest in reading. It is a center of spiritual life aiming to expand the acquired literacy. The chitalishte is and will be the center of every cultural and public initiative, a temple of Bulgarian thought and word, and a material expression of Bulgarian spiritual might.” 70 years later, this sounds topical and feasible through the Global Libraries. 32
