The library was founded in 1962 as a structural unit of the Pavlodar Pedagogical Institute. The work on the creation of the library was headed by Elizaveta Romanovna Chernikova. The first entry in the inventory book was made on November 9, 1962, it was a "Russian-German dictionary", and by the end of the month inventory book No. 1 was completed, there were 5 thousand books in the library fund.

From the first day of her work as a bibliographer, Galina Vasilyevna began conducting library classes with first-year students, promoting bibliographic manuals to help the educational process. Thanks to her systematic, purposeful work, classes on the basics of library and bibliographic knowledge (BBZ) began to be included in the curriculum, first at the Faculty of Philology, and then at two faculties (1972), and since 1975, the BBZ training course has become mandatory at all faculties.
