Picture this: a library of international standards at Gokarn, with the largest collection of rare books and paintings from around the globe. This is no imagination but a soon-to-be-reality, all thanks to a French organisation, Pandrata Circle, that has taken up a novel project to restore ‘Study Circle’, a private library at Gokarn, which is in dilapidated condition.
In an interview with the Express, Tabet Elias, the founding member of Pandrata Circle on Saturday, said that the association had proposed to develop the library into a Franco-Indian cultural centre.
He said a project christened ‘Study Circle Project’ envisages the construction of a library building in an area of 2000 square metre, in the first phase. He said the new building will have reading and study rooms, Internet corner, office and storage space for books.
