Dr Arun Kumar Chakraborty, Mission Director, National Mission on Libraries has written a letter stating that UNESCO has declared the Public Library as "Peoples' University". In his letter dated 23 Feb 2015, he'd proposed to set up a Modern Public Library in New Town. Dr Chakraborty and his team subsequently visited possible spaces on second/ third floor of Najrul Tirtha. Today, the Hidco Board met and agreed to rent out a portion to NML (excluding the space earmarked for Najrul Academy). . I hope to discuss further details with him shortly.
