MBMC unveils two e-libraries for digital reading

Those using municipal libraries in Mira-Bhayandar will now be able to access reading material at the click of a mouse. In an attempt to rekindle the habit of reading and introduce the new concept in a digital format, where innumerable books can be easily accessed, the Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) unveiled the e-versions at the existing libraries at Nagar Bhawan in Bhayandar (west) and Ramnagar in Mira Road.

The e-libraries were inaugurated by Mayor Geeta Jain in the presence of civic chief Achyut Hange on occasion of Republic Day. The MBMC has spent Rs.80 lakh for the endeavour which includes upgradation work and the facility will be extended to the other two libraries in the region. Apart from resources currently available, the e-library will expand in due course of time with an added range of e-books, journals, online training videos, references and reading material that can be accessed offline. However, the administration has also trained its focus on protecting users from obscene and harmful online content through advanced filtering techniques.

“There are many students who are keen on higher studies but cannot afford to buy books or have access to the Internet. For them the e-library is the solution,” said Mayor Geeta Jain. As of now the MBMC operates four public libraries and five student study rooms in the twin-city.
