ACTIVITIES

NGO Activities : PREFACE This organisation is situated in a remote village at the eastern part of Kollam District in Kerala State. It was established in the year 1962 as a transformation of a cultural and dramatic group named SUBHASH MEMORIAL YUVAJANA SAMAJAM started by some patriotic youth which existed as such only for the year 1961. The Samajam was engaged in performing in folk arts and drama by local artists , later on it was converted into a Grameena grandhalayam namesd as Subhash Memorial grandhasala. Now, it has reached in a remarkable position in the realm of rural village public libraries in kollam district. The library has its own building with area of 150 square metre within a land with an extent of 1.5 ares. Land was purchased in the year 1961 and the construction of building was undertaken by 3 successive stages. Intially it began as 600 books and a small room constructed in the year 1985, solely with the participation and contribution by the members, the streangth of whome would came only below 100. Subsequently the organization got registered with Kerala Grandhasala Sangham which later re-organised as Kerala State Library Council as per the statute of 1989. From 1987, annual grant was sanctioned by Government through library council grading the library as E Now, it is one of the largest A grade libraries in the locality and it is reaching half a centuary after the establishment. The second face of the construction of the building was started in the year 1990 considering the inadequesy of existed building and facilities. There was assistance by local grama panchayat and State Library Council for the purpose. The grant received from the panchayat for the first time was Rs. 17500 and State Library Council Rs. 25000. Even though the said extension work was completed in the year 1993 before passing a decade the room for book stack, reading room and other activities found insufficient and thus the members and office bearers started preparation in their idea of constructing another floor on the then existed structure. Thus , a detailed plan and estimate was made available to the local panchayat and Honourable member of Rajyasabha Sri. N.K. Premachandran. There was commendable support from all sides including the allocation of Rs. 45000 from grama panchayath for streangthening the ground floor and Honourable Rajyasabha Member allowed Rs. 132000 under MPs LAD Scheme . Rennovation in this way was completed and the building was inaugurated in the year 2003. Now the building is with space for accomodating books and furniture foreseeing the development for a period over 25 years. The present market value of building comes Ten Lakhs . Total number of bookstock is 10018 which values above 4 lakhs. Total number of members are 1132 as on 31-12-2009.
