Pallabi Devi, Debajit Borgohain
The Public Library, the local gateway to knowledge, provides a basic condition for lifelong learning, independent decision making and cultural development of the individual and social group. It plays a pragmatic role in establishing connectivity from the local level to the state and national level thereby, providing information from one domain to the other centres. Public libraries can play an important role in strengthening the foundation of democracy. Public libraries have enough scope to keep all the people in a common platform to develop multicultural society. The role played by Public libraries in modern civilized society needs no elaboration. It is unfortunate to note that a major section of the society is still unaware about the role and function of Public libraries. In this juncture it is tried to have a close look on the functioning of the Public libraries in Assam by undertaking a study on two District Libraries in Assam namely “District Library Mangaldoi” and “District Library Tezpur” particularly focusing on issues of the organization, management and services.
