In November 2018, on the basis of KZ “Kherson Regional Universal Scientific Library. Oles Honchar ”CHOIR launched a project – an inclusive theater at the library“ Ordinary role – a special actor ”in order to draw community attention to the problems of people with special needs, promote their social adaptation through participation in theater and other socio-cultural, educational, artistic and educational in general library activities, as well as overcoming stereotypes about the place of the modern library in society.
