Amidst fund crunch People’s Park Library taking shape

March 26, 2019

A new building of Mysuru City Central Library is taking shape amidst fund crunch in People’s Park premises at Nazarbad opposite Government Guest House.

It is a two-storeyed building and the construction work of the structure is nearing completion. Seventy-five percent of the works have been completed and works are on to fix doors, windows and interiors.

The new library building is being built at a cost of Rs. 5 crore at an area of 300X400 feet inside the Park. “The Mysuru City Corporation has to pay Rs. 75 lakh that has been collected as library cess. Once the MCC pays the money, we will complete the works,” said Department of Libraries Deputy Director B. Manjunath.

The existing building of City Central Library on Sayyaji Rao Road has no scope for separate sections and the existing sections are narrow and congested. This is the reason why a new and a spacious building is being constructed at People’s Park, he said.
