News and Events

Books worth Indian Rs 4 Corer donated to Jaffna Public Library.

Education Minister of Tamil Nadu K.A Sengottaiyan visited Jaffna Public Library on 18th September 2018 and donated 50 thousand books worth Indian rupees 4 crore. Sri Lankan State Education Minister V.Radhakrishnan organized this event. Governor of Northern Province Reginald Cooray participated as a guest.

“It is commendable, though the government of Tamil Nadu donated humanitarian assistants such as food and cloths, moreover they have donated “knowledge” now. Governor commented this event.

Religious reformers Srila Sri Arumuga Navarl and Vivekanada wrote many books. They died but their experiences are in their books. I realize that I take their knowledge when I take their books in my hands. We cannot take all the experiences at an early age. But we can learn many experiences through reading their books.

Therefore we can make our life better. During the reign of the British, they made great developments in the south, but they did not make huge developments in the Northern Province. But in Jaffna, quality of education was high during the period. They learnt well and possessed higher posts. I wish that situation should be continued. He further said.
