A book is a true friend

Since ancient times, the Turkmen people have treated books with great respect and honour. In the work by N. Saryhanov, a single book was exchanged for a camel. Our ancestors always had a great demand for books. Although the libraries in Nisa, Koneurgench, Amul, Dehistan and Merv have not survived, the Turkmen people have created stories, legends, parables, and tales with deep meaning that are easy to remember and retell.

The advantages of reading

Books are a real treasure and a key to knowledge. Without books, our history would not exist. The "Paýhas çeşmesi" book, published thanks to the concern of our Hero-Arkadag, reads: ‘those who do not read books will see, those who read books will explore the world’, ‘those who read books are rich in spirit’, ‘books educate like parents’, etc. These sayings have great meaning. Reading educates a person, prepares for the challenges of life, makes advises, guides in the right path and awakens humaneness in people. In the childhood, people take a book in their hands and start to open its magic pages and discover its secrets. Each book has a special meaning and teaches people new things. If a person has a question or faces life's challenges, he or she can look for a solution in the book.
