Rural Library Movement
Bansa Community Library is the second library in the ‘Rural Library Movement’ – an initiative to set up and sustain community-run libraries in the villages of India. The first library under this initiative was established in Cheruia village (District Balia), and the third – and the most recent one – was set up in Kalyanpur village (District Hardoi). These libraries operate on the same model: locally managed by the community members and remotely supported by volunteers and patrons.
