Libraries for all
Since the ancient times, libraries serve as community information centers providing access to a wide range of knowledge and information to the communities at large. . Despite of having an important role in Information sharing &learning, the libraries in India still are largely being considered as repository for books & facing issues like new tools of learning & participation of communities in day to day activities. .
Realizing the potential of Libraries in empowering communities through increasing their access to information and grassroots community engagement, IDAF worked together with Digital Empowerment Foundation in Uttar Pradesh with support of Govt. of Uttar Pradesh & Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
With the moto of ENGAE- INFORM- EMPOWER, District Library Resource Centre (DLRC) has been set up at Government District Library, Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, with the aim to make Public Libraries an Information & Entrepreneurship Hub, accessible to all section of the society and increase the footfalls.
IDAF is asking people to come forward & join us to setup as many small libraries at rural areas like Panchayat level to improve the rural life style. We are open to get ideas & suggestions to make it more viable to the communities are in need.
