The Department of National and Local Literature and Bibliography was founded in 1922. Its formation is related to the name of Kozma Filimonov (1855-1924), who presented his collection of local history editions to the library and was appointed a librarian of the Department. In 1926, the Department was named the Central Reference Library. Since 1959, the public library began to perform functions of a Book Chamber. In 1991, the library received the status of a National Library and the structural unit was renamed the Department of National and Local Literature.
