UNESCO donates bus to Jaffna Municipal Library

[TamilNet, Friday, 22 April 2005, 19:10 GMT]
UNESCO Friday donated a bus for the mobile library service of the Jaffna Municipal Council at an event held at the municipal library premises. Mr.R.P.Perera, Sri Lanka's representative of the UNESCO handed over the keys of the bus to Dr.K.Gunarasa, Jaffna Municipal Commissioner. Three Photostat machines were also handed over to Mr.S.Thanabalasingham, Chief Librarian of the Municipal Library, sources said.

Jaffna Government Agent Mr.K.Ganesh, Dr.K.Gunarasa and Mr.R.P.Perera lit the traditional oil lamp.

Dr.Gunarasa presided over the event.

Mr.Perera said he would take steps in consultation with the Government of Sri Lanka to bring Naguleswaram in Kerimalai, Thirukoneswaram and several historical places in the northeast under the cultural heritage project of the UNESCO. Constructing buildings and providing funds would not develop the country. The development of the country also depends of the development of knowledge of the people. UNESCO will work towards this aim, he said.

Mr.Ganesh, Government Agent, Mr.S.Paramanathan, member of the Jaffna Municipal Development Committee, Mr.K.C.Velautham, Jaffna Library Committee member and Mr.S.Thanabalasingham, chief librarian also spoke.
