The jubilee exhibition "The Unknown Sphinx" is devoted to the 295th anniversary of the birth of an outstanding Ukrainian humanistic educator, philosopher, poet and teacher Grigory Savvich Skovoroda. He was born in the village of Chernukha in Poltava in 1722. Skovoroda received his education at the Kiev Mogila Academy. Persecuted by secular and spiritual authorities, from the 1770s he led a life of a wandering philosopher. And this journey lasted until his death, almost thirty years. It was full of adventures, shrouded in legends and stories. The glory of Skovoroda went so far that queen Catherine II also knew about him and wished to see him. She sent Skovoroda an invitation with her assistant Potemkin asking to move from Ukraine to St. Petersburg. The messenger gave Skovoroda the queen's invitation but Grigory Savvich looked simply and calmly into the messenger's eyes and said, "Tell the queen that I will not leave Ukraine - I have a pipe and a sheep and they are more expensive than a royal crown."
The exhibition is presented in the department of scientific literature.
A dog lives with people for many years. The dog serves him faithfully, accompanies him, helps to protect herds, borders, catches criminals or just gives joy, love and friendship. Nowadays about 400 breeds of dogs live on earth. The longer a dog lives in a house, the more the owner talks to her, the more words it understands. In some incomprehensible way dogs also know how to recognize a person's mood and emotions and can influence them.
2018 is the year of the Dog according to the Chinese astrological calendar, it starts on February 16, 2018. The exhibition about the best friends of a man - dogs called "Always near" is devoted to this event.

In the period of 1917-1921 Ukraine experienced various forms of national statehood: the Ukrainian People’s Republic, the Ukrainian state, The Western Ukrainian People's Republic (the ZUNR), the Kuban People’s Republic, as well as the Crimean People’s Republic, but it could not maintain its state independence. The Ukrainian ethnic territories were divided among the USSR, the Polish Republic, the Kingdom of Romania and the Czechoslovak Republic. Thus, the Ukrainian national-democratic revolution was defeated.
