The demand for books in Zinovievsk (now Kropyvnytskyi) in 1925—1926 is considered in the article. Such an aspect wasn't studied earlier. This research is based on the sources of the State Archives of Kirovohrad region (reports of the Zinovievsk branch of the State Publishing House of Ukraine and inspection committee reports in the Zinovievsk State bookstore). The functions of Vseukrvydav were monitoring the situation with the demand for books for all time, making reports about the most popular types of literature, lack of demanded books, etc. These reports were based on sales and requests in bookshops in Zinovievsk, Bobrynetc, Novoukrainka and other marketplaces in the Kirovohrad region. The activity of the cooperative publishing houses Knigospilka and Rukh, the main competitors of the Vseukrvydav, which provided the need for scarce editions, was analyzed. The main conclusions are made from our research. The most popular books were factual, socio-economic, legal ones, as well as schoolbooks, agriculture books and fiction books for children and adults. Most of them were published in Ukrainian (including plays published by the Knyhospilka, Rukh). In some periods there was a demand for philosophical books.
