Impact of revival of Rural Public Libraries

Impact of revival of Rural Public Libraries



Through revitalisation of rural libraries project, RDPR Department is energizing Gram Panchayat Libraries and Information Centres (GPLICs) in Karnataka towards making them spaces for multi-disciplinary, multi-generational learning. 

Physical upgradation of library infrastructure (2923 rejuvenated and 2377 made computerized), and extension of library hours has made it an attractive and conducive learning space for children, enabling peer to peer learning.

Capacity building of library supervisors through various trainings offered by Govt by collaborating with various NGOs on Library Management; promoting usage of library through programmes such as Read aloud, storytelling, book clubs, seminars, public speaking has resulted in increased memberships.

Gradual social transformation is being witnessed in the rural areas, starting from influence on developing reading habit, and regular visits by students, women (novels), senior citizens (newspapers). Self Help Group women use these spaces for their meetings. Reading books is an exceptionally pleasant pastime that adds to individuals’ happiness and sense of well-being.
