E-mail Print

The launching of the ICTA-initiated e-mobile library in Suriyawewa in Hambantota is another step taken to allow poorest sections of the society to reap benefits of Information Technology. 

“Nenasakmana”, implemented by the Sooriyawewa Nenasala under the e-Society programme of the Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA), houses four laptops for which power is provided through a solar panel fixed on the roof of the buddy lorry and internet connectivity through a dongle. Its library is electronic. It contains CDs for kids, school children and farmers. This is, of course, in addition to information on various other disciplines, new technologies and information on government institutions and procedures.

e-Mobile LibraryThe facility is specifically designed for the area it serves. Currently it serves 10 Grama Niladhari Divisions selected out of 21 in the Suriyawewa Divisional Secretariat area.

In addition the mobile library or rather the Nenasala on wheels visits schools and villages disseminating information of specific interest to the people of the area. This includes information on agriculture, modern technological methods as well as information related to school curriculum for students, job opportunites for the youth, specialised educational publications and special government publications including the Gazette.
