“The library is huge a mechanism that requires the well-coordinated work of all employees. Librarian job, observed by the visitor, this is just the tip of the iceberg. None canceled constant interaction with the foundation — its arrangement, dust removal, study, acquisition. Some books tend to become outdated morally, therefore this must be carefully monitored to keep the fund up to date. It is necessary track novelties of the book market, make lists, announce purchases, compile catalogs. And I, as a director, must control all these processes. We have a unique team, consisting of professionals who have gone through a large-scale restoration process and difficult crossings. They are not afraid to express their point of view, and I appreciate that. In the process of discussions, and possibly disputes, the truth is born, it is possible to come to a consensus that suits everyone”.

“Plants are easy to care for. This is a very pleasant process that brings many pleasant emotions. I want to convey this to everyone, because for each person you can pick up a flower with which he can live in tandem for many, many years”.

“I was born and lived all my life in Berezniki. There was a young technician station near my house. As a third grader, I saw model airplanes in the window. I was immediately interested in this case, and I signed up there. I served in the army, entered the pedagogical school, and then returned to the station of young technicians, but already as a teacher. Much has changed since then, the station was renamed several times, but I have been running an aircraft modeling circle here for more than forty years”.

“Each organ is extremely sensitive to the slightest changes in temperature and humidity in the room. Accuracy and understanding of the tree is required because tools can behave differently in different conditions. This must be taken into account and the final location of the organ must be kept in mind at all stages of its creation”.

Material about an organ master who built his own railway.
