Andhra Pradesh as a state is destined to go tech savvy, thanks to the style of its leader and his leadership. However, Kurnool has only lately proved that technology is a must for even the most neglected places in the city.
The city will now see state of the art biometric system and closed circuit cameras at the various government libraries. Sampati Dhana Reddy, Chairman of District Grandhalaya Samstha said that this is a move to improve the performance of the employees working in these libraries.
A discussion came to light during the second general body meeting in the district library here, where the Chairman assured to purchase furniture and books for competitive examinations that will benefit readers as well as students.
To this effect, proposals have been forwarded to AP Government to sanction Rs. 25 lakh each for the construction of library buildings in the Assembly constituency headquarters and Rs. 15 lakh for buildings at all Mandal levels. Proposals were also sent to sanction Rs. 2,000 to each Government library in order to subscribe to newspapers and their maintenance.
The chair also approved contingency funds to deploy drinking water facility to the libraries. Events such as library week, literary meets to promote Telugu language, conducting sports and songs competitions on Nehru’s birth anniversary have been approved to be conducted.
