Library Visit Report 2013

Between December 11 and December 24, 2013 Naresh Koirala, President along with Dhan Kumar Shrestha, NLF’s program officer, visited a number of libraries supported by NLF to:

Assess their uses and to try and understand the impact these libraries have made to the local community and
To understand the issues and problems they have faced moving forward

The assessment was based on on-site interaction/discussion with the Library Management Board and the library users. Each discussion session lasted 2 to 3 hours. At the end of the discussion the Library Management Board and NLF) agreed to a plan of action to address identified deficiencies.

Naresh Koirala also visited a number of other libraries where he was invited for consultation and exploration of collaboration.

This report presents a summary of my observations and discusses the agreed action plan. An estimated cost to update each library is provided with the summary observations for that library.
