The United Nations Library is a joint library of United Nations Agencies in the Kyrgyz Republic. The United Nations Library serves as the focal point for public information on the activities of the UN and its agencies in the Kyrgyz Republic and the main public resource facility for disseminating information about the UN system.

Members of the public, users from the Government Agencies, NGOs, the media, private sector, as well as scholars and students from local and foreign universities, research institutions, and schools are most welcomed to visit the UN House library situated in the buildings of the National Kyrgyz University.
