SEEDS Public Library Initiative

Let's be the Change

Inauguration of the Odisha Public eLibrary

We are very happy that our effort, after 2+ years of ups and downs, now has an identifiable form. The Odisha Public eLibrary was inaugurated by the Chief Minister of Odisha on this day, August 31st, 2017.

Turns out the Berhampur (Brahmapur) city, the location of our eLibrary, just celebrated its 150th Anniversary.


We, the volunteers and dreamers, are continuing our work to enable the staffing (which is still not completed), management and the library opening to for actual public use, with the continued support of the govt. officials and citizens at various points of time and space.

    Dear Darshan & others: The journey has only started. If we can, and hope we will, spread this idea – Odisha will become the top state in India. People’s potential is there but the ideas, rather implementation is poor. We have to run it up to 10 years (and in the process create a viable sustaining model to break the digital divide) and in doing so will need everyone’s helping hand. At least create the demand to take the model to your community back in Odisha. If we are able to do so we will be helping the movement which will create a demand for a movement for information access. Can we do it? Hope is we can. We dream we can. Help of every SEEDS member is needed to move it forward.

    ଏହି ଉତ୍ତମ ଖବର ନିମନ୍ତେ ଧନ୍ୟବାଦ।
    କିଛି ହେଉଛି ଆଉ ଏହିପରି କିଛି ଭଲ ହେବା ହିଁ ଓଡ଼ିଶା ନିମନ୍ତେ ସୁଖଦ।
    ଏହି ପାଠାଗାର ପାଠକ ସୃଷ୍ଟି କରୁ ଏବଂ ଶିକ୍ଷିତ ସୁହୃଦ ମଧ୍ୟ।

    ସାହିତ୍ୟ ସର୍ବଦା ସମୃଦ୍ଧିଶାଳୀ ରହୁ … ସାହିତ୍ୟର ଜୟଯାତ୍ରା ଜାରୀ ରହୁ…!!!

    ଓଡ଼ିଶାବାସୀ ଓ ଓଡ଼ିଆଭାଷୀଙ୍କୁ
    ସଶ୍ରଦ୍ଧ ସପ୍ରେମ ସହୃଦୟ ଶୁଭେଚ୍ଛା…!
    ବିଶ୍ୱଭାତୃତ୍ୱର ସଦ୍‌ଭାବ ନେଇ ସମସ୍ତ ଓଡ଼ିଆ ସୁଖ-ଶାନ୍ତି-ପ୍ରେମରେ ରୁହନ୍ତୁ।
    ଓଡ଼ିଶାର ସମୃଦ୍ଧି ଆଉ ସମ୍ମାନ ଆମର କର୍ତ୍ତବ୍ୟ ହେଉ; ଏହା ହିଁ ପ୍ରାର୍ଥନା ।
    ଆମେ ଓଡ଼ିଆ…ଆମ ଓଡ଼ିଶା…!!!
