RILM RECEIVES DONATION OF 3.75 LAKH BOOKS WORTH RS. 5 CRORE

In continuation with last month?s report where we had mentioned about RILM?s understanding with Oriental Black Swan Publishers Pvt. Ltd at national level from where RILM was supposed to receive 3.75 Lakh books worth Rs. 5 crore, free of cost. RILM is in the process of procuring these books from 5 locations namely Noida, Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai and Lucknow. The collection and storage of these books are being taken care of by the Rotarians. The books in Kolkata, Lucknow and Mumbai have been received. Books in Kolkata have been received and sorted for four districts namely 3202, 3240, 3291, 3262 and corresponding Inner Wheel and Rotaract Districts. All these books are English books. There are for both primary and secondary classes and have been distributed among districts to create libraries in govern and government-aided schools.

The next course of action would be to replicate the sorting procedure at Noida, Lucknow, Mumbai and Chennai to complete book distribution to districts. Rotary International Director, Basker Chockalingam has encouraged the Rotarians and Inner Wheel members to take up this project actively and create libraries across the country with these books.
