Abstract:The librarians did not let the hardships and constraints they faced dictate their path, and they have found ways to make their libraries into community centers and to engage members of the community in civic and social activities. Part of the reason librarians in Bryansk were successful in their civic endeavors was through the way they infused the legacy of Soviet librarianship into the current incarnation of the libraries in Bryansk. Furthermore, through active outreach to both the community and the government the librarians are working to maintain their legitimacy and relevance to both.
