WELCOME TO KATHMANDU VALLEY PUBLIC LIBRARY

ABOUT US

Public libraries are in service for more than six decades in Nepal. There are many public/community libraries registered in Nepal. Moreover, those which are functional are either poorly equipped or do not have the resources or the means to cater to the needs of a modern society. Following the definition of UNESCO/IFLA, public libraries are not yet established in Kathmandu.
