City public library that bears the name of A.S. Pushkin for many decades is one of the buildings that determines the peculiar appearance of Evpatoria. The building of the reading room of the city library is made in the form of a rotunda. Together with the theater and nearby buildings, the library is an integral ensemble. 

Built in the spirit of popular then Russian neoclassicism with imitation of the Empire style.  Round in plan, the building is made in the form of a rotunda and repeats the ancient Greek round temple.  On the east side, a rectangular room for storing books adjoins the rotunda, and from the west is the main entrance that is decorated with a semi-circular arched niche filled with two pilasters, and in the upper part - with decorative inserts.  There is a splendidly executed dome inside. 

From a distance you can see a tall dome with semicircular windows in the upper dome and rectangular in the bottom. And on both sides of the path leading to the front entrance.  There are two marble lions before the front door.  In the interior, the same style is maintained. The round reading room is well consecrated.  Windows fill it with even scattered light.  The hall is separated from the book depository by an arch and two massive columns.  The official opening of the library took place on June 15, 1916. 

In three months the library had more than 1,100 readers.  At that time, there were about 3,000 books in its funds. Currently, the Central City Library of A.S.  Pushkin remains for residents and visitors of the city one of the main centers of cultural and educational life and the activities of Evpatoria.  In subsequent years, the fund grew and is more than 90 thousand volumes.  The library serves more than 6 thousand readers.
