In order to promote reading and research, the Punjab Information Technology Board is constructing state of the art e-libraries across different cities in Punjab.
The first of amongst the 15 e-libraries planned to be opened in Punjab has just been completed in Attock. The library will now provide hassle-free data through thousands of e-books and hard copies to the public without any licensing restrictions or any costs associated with copyrights.
The Attock e-library is built with a very modern infrastructure that provides a comfortable experience for the reader. It holds 3,000 books, and around 1,000 e-books, publications, and magazines readily available for anyone visiting the library.
To promote research, the library will also be conducting frequent short courses that aim to provide better guidance. Each of the libraries also features separate auditoriums that can be used for combined creative activities. Around 50 people can easily fit into these auditoriums.
Currently, e-libraries are being set up at Rahim Yar Khan, Gujrat, Bhakkar, Narowal, Multan, Vehari, Faisalabad, and other cities of Punjab.
Nearly 5 of these libraries are near completion with ten others in the development phase.
