Key events of the project will be shown live on social networks. Online quizzes and intellectual games, literary contests will also be held there.

One of the days will be devoted to popular science literature, when presentations of books in the genre of nonfiction and meetings with Norilsk travelers are expected.

The need of Norilsk citizens for an intellectual form of leisure became evident when in 2018 the Northern book intellectual festival SKIF was held in the public library, which was attended by more than five thousand citizens. The library received numerous requests from residents of the city to organize the next book festival, which will be done thanks to the competition of social projects.
