SEEDS volunteers contributed immensely to the ‘first’ public e-library in Odisha named as “Odisha Public e-Library” at Brahmapur city.
The activities that we led to conceptualize, create the plan, and execute, working with the various Govt. officials, are documented at https://www.seedsnet.org/publiclibrary/. The collaborative efforts started in 2014. By end of 2017 we handed over our responsibilities to Odisha Society of the Americas as a donor and the Brahmapur Municipality Corporation (BMC) as the overall stakeholder and executor. The e-Library is still functioning at the old Town Hall of the city and BMC continues to own and manage it. Occasional, informal visits or advice to the e-library are conducted by SEEDS volunteers and OSA members.
