NLF assisted library “has changed the culture of the Academy” says Senior Supt Kharel of the Central Police Academy

In April 2015 the NLF assisted the Middle Region Police Training Centre in the upgrading of an existing library including provision of library management training, installation and configuration of an e-Pustakalaya networked server, and provision of books and computers donated by Dr Vijay Jha and Mr Kapil Thapa.

A chance meeting of Mr Sapkota of NLF Nepal with Senior Superintendent Ramesh Kharel at the opening celebration of an NLF sponsored library led to the request for NLF’s assistance in upgrading the Training Centre’s library.Fundraising for the project was coordinated by Mr Sapkota.

The library now has fifty networked computers linked to an e-Pustakalaya resource.

“The library has changed the culture of the academy.” says Supt Kharej “Trainee officers are spending much of their leisure time in the library. This is quite heartening. They seem to be anxious to learn how policing is done in other parts of the world. There is constant demand for police magazines and new books especially police investigative stories.”

The NLF is well positioned to provide a cost effective service to institutions wishing to upgrade their library facilities. With ten years experience in library deployment, it is very gratifying to see how well the implementation model that has been developed over this time is capable of being adapted to diverse situations.

Senior Supt Kharel is to be congratulated for his vision. We are very glad to have been of help in implementing it.
