The donations amounted to 1 798 BGN, of them 798 BGN were used for the renovation of the children's section of the library, the rest 1 000 BGN were invested in the creation of the memorable plate. The library was enriched with 344 volumes of books amounting to 1 907 BGN and 105 items of music literature (118 BGN) donated by citizens and publishers.
The renovation works at the children's section of the library ended in the beginning of 2010.
