It’s an immense pleasure to see that our 4-year long effort finally sees the light of the day — it moves from its original location to the Brahmapur Town Hall and the eLibrary is open!
The officials look on during the opening event.

A lot more work remains — to make this infrastructure fulfill its potential to become a truly valuable resource for the communities around it!

Note: Although the opening of the eLibrary at the old location was delayed possibly due to some reasons, there was an unexpected windfall: the new commissioner offered the Town Hall building to alleviate two concerns we originally had. They are a facility for visitor parking and a staff dedicated to the library. The original adversity (of delayed opening) turned into an apparent advantage.
