Bengal Govt coming up with state-of-the-art library at Nazrul Tirtha
Nazrul Tirtha in New Town, planned and named by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, a major cultural centre of the Bengal Government will soon get a state-of-the-art library. It will be constructed by the Government agency, Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation (HIDCO).
The proposed library will come up on the third and fourth floors of Nazrul Tirtha. It will be a library with all modern facilities. Like all modern libraries, there will be cubicles for research scholars, which they can hire. There will be some rooms too. There will be both text and reference books of all the subjects. There will be a children’s section as well. Books will also be available online. Books on career counselling and foreign language will be kept at the library too.
A smart card will be given to the members. There will be a drop box where members can drop their books when the library remains closed or they are moving out of the city. Steps will be taken to stop damage of books and their theft.
At Nazrul Tirtha, an archive on Kazi Nazrul Islam has been set up. A library has also been set up at Swapno Bhor, also in New Town, which is the only senior citizen’s park in Bengal.
