The Kyrgyz collection encompasses literature from Kyrgyzstan, but also literature about the country and works in the Kyrgyz language from all over the world. Its size can be estimated only, since the volumes have not been marked specially in the catalogue. Currently, the collection amounts to around 1,300 volumes and approximately 80 current or discontinued periodicals. A large part of the periodicals in printed form is from the time of the Soviet Union. Since the 2000s, periodicals have been acquired predominantly in electronic form. Currently, around 25 electronic journals are available. The collection grows by around 12 media items annually.
