THE KUZYEMKINO RURAL LIBRARY (Bolshoe Kuzyemkino Village). In 1897 a peasant community reading library at Narova volost government, in the village of Kuzyemkino, was opened . After the revolution of 1917 the village reading room functioned there. The library was founded in 1964 on the base of the libraries working at the community centres of the villages of Bolshoe Kuzyemkino and Ropsha. Since 1997 the library was part of Kingisepp centralized library network, since 2006 has been working independently. Its general-purpose fund numbers 12,000 itemts, with 600 permanent members and 7,000 visits annually. The library offers a range of publications in the Izhora language: textbooks and readers, as well as copies of ABC book for the Izhora language and a book on grammar of the language. The library is engaged in researching the history and culture of the local nationality of Izhora and runs a mini-museum of things of family life.
