One Library Per Villager (OLPV), a non profit organization is all set to revive Chennai libraries which were damaged in Chennai floods. OLPV through its Save the Library campaign is urging people to contribute books to make libraries functional.

It had a major impact on the area’s industrial, commercial, and residential sectors, causing business interruption and damage to infrastructure, automobiles, buildings and contents The floods also damaged the most of libraries in the the city and now page by page efforts are being made to restore them.

Five of the 159 public libraries were wrecked in the floods and the library in Ashok Nagar was the worst affected.The campaign which is coordinated by Sujai G.Pillai started virtually and people were requested to donate the books to revive the libraries.

One Library Per Villager (OLPV) has so far opened 7 libraries in villages of Kerala. They also support the existing libraries. “Being from a remote village and a lover of library, the present reading habits of students worried me a lot and also the biggest problem India facing today is a digital divide. The nation gives less importance to adult education and a person above 25 years of age do not have any facility to learn latest technology. Save the library is also a part of OLPV and through book bucket challenge we are collecting books so that the libraries become functional.” says Sujai G. Pillai, in a talk with The Logical Indian.
