The Public Library in Kozhikode, a hub for all book lovers in the district, is to get a facelift soon with the district administration planning renovation at a cost of Rs.1 crore.

Minister for Social Justice and Panchayats M.K. Muneer said the library would be raised to international standards as per the master plan and the work would be undertaken with the help of Academy for Skill Excellence. First stage of renovation activities would start on Wednesday.

The master plan will be executed on a war-footing, completing one floor at a time. The renovated library will consist of a modern digital library, language lab, skill development centre, and brail library.

Efforts are being made to seek the cooperation of institutions such as the British Council, Goethe Zentrum (Germany), Alliance Francaise (France) as well as one of the Middle East counties in the renovation, supply of books and equipment, and skill development, the Minister said.

The first floor of the building at Mananchira will be closed down for renovation soon.
