DEVELOPMENT OF PUBLIC LIBRARIES

(2006-07 TO 2009-10)

 

(UNDER TWELVETH FINANCE COMMISSION AWARD)

(i)

“There are treasures of spirit which may not be of any Conceivable use in the struggle for material comfort, but if we are to be qualified to assist or resist the dominant tendencies of our age, we can not afford to ignore the standards and ideals built by the austerity and abnegation of our ancestors across the centuries. The chief source of spiritual nourishment for any people must be its own past perpetually rediscovered and renewed. A society without a knowledge of the past which has made it would be lacking in depth and dignity.”                                                 

                                                                                                                   (Dr. Radhakrishnan)

 PRELIMINAR IES

Public libraries are people’s universities. A University requires a laboratory, a classroom and many more things to impart education, but a public library is both a laboratory and a substitute of classroom. In the context of modern societies, it is lifeline and portal of living system of the society. In the event of modern paperless society, this has a tremendous role to play in shaping the people in their proper prospective. 

 “ Libraries have played an important role in the spread of knowledge and awareness among persons of all ages. Considering the growing literacy and general awareness among the people, particularly the youth, in the urban as well as rural areas, it has become necessary to strengthen and upgrade the network of public libraries in the country. We have, therefore, provided an amount of Rs.1 Crore for the State Level public libraries in each State. In addition, we have provided amounts computed at Rs.20 lakhs per district for up gradation of public libraries in the mufusil and rural areas. The Commission feels that the States may create a corpus, invest it and use the returns from it for the purchase of books and periodicals every year on a sustainable basis”.

 

(The 11th Finance Commission, Report, Para 7.23, Page-67)

1.  AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

1.1.      The aim of the project is to strengthen the existing public libraries and also to build up a network of the other libraries so that people in urban and rural and mofusil areas get access to the world of learning, knowledge, information and date contained in various formats of books, documents and print and electronic media including digital devices.

 1.2.      The objective is to support public reading habit among the people, utilize leisure time for information, recreation and education of the youth, the woman folk, the senior citizens and the neo-literates created out of the post literacy programs undertaken by the Government under the Literacy Mission.

            1.3       The thrust area is therefore to build up libraries in the areas where such facilities are not existing and where such facilities are available, those are to be               strengthened and finally bring them into a network so that a reading public is not deprived of getting his/her desired information at a minimum distance from        his         working station or residential locality.

 (2)

2.            Development of Public Libraries.

 

2.1.      The library movement in the State can be traced to the pre-independence days when the feudatory chiefs and erstwhile kings had patronized the movement by organizing libraries for the people of their states.

 

2.2.      The popular Government in the State developed libraries from 1951. The Harekrushna Mahtab State Library at Bhubaneswar was started in 1967.

 

2.3.            Presently there are 17 District Libraries under the Department of Culture. There are also 6 Ex-District Board Libraries and 3 Memorial Libraries functioning under the Department. 13 Grantee District Libraries have been functioning under I & PR Department.

 

2.4.      In addition there is a State Library and a Bhubaneswar Public Library, both functioning at Bhubaneswar.

 

2.5.      To develop public library system and encourage reading habit by people, both in urban and rural areas. The Eleventh Finance Commission was kind enough to award Rs.7 crores. This amount is being maintained as Corpus Fund in 30 Districts of the State and at Bhubaneswar for the State Library.

 

2.6.      The interest from these corpus accounts are meant to be used for purchase of books, periodicals, newspapers etc. for the libraries in each District Headquarters.

 

2.7.      It is now proposed to construct new library buildings and repair existing library buildings at District, Sub-Division ,Block levels and heritage libraries.

 

2.8.      It is also proposed to provide storage equipments, reading room facilities and computerization of major libraries in different parts of the State. It is also proposed to upgrade the Harekrushna Mahtab State Library Building and the facilities available therein by extension of the existing building and modernizing the facilities.

 

2.9.      An amount of Rs.10 crores is allotted for the purpose.

3.            Existing infrastructure & implementation:        

                        There is no machinery of Director, Culture or Library to implement the Projects. Hence certain Modus Operandi are to be chalked out.

3.1.      The Library Buildings shall be taken of at State Capital, District Headquarters of 30 Districts, Sub-Divisional Headquarters of Rairangpur and 4 (four) areas of Ex-District Board of Balipadar, Chikiti, K.S.
