However, after the commissioning of the four-storey academic building in the 1970s, the area of the library expanded significantly. The library was located in the basement of this academic building. In Soviet times, the library annually received 10-15 thousand copies of new books. In the 1980s and 1990s, more than twice as many books were brought into the library. During the independence of Tajikistan, the library fund reached 287 thousand people.
