It not only accommodates shopping malls, theme parks, and restaurants but also shares its space with some magnificent places like Anna Centenary library. A world class library which fulfills the thirst for knowledge of hundreds and hundreds of students, research scholars, businessmen and others with modern amenities. A quote which attracted me in recent times that “ A University is just a group of buildings gathered around a library. According to that the library is situated in center of the city Kotturpuram which was surrounded by prominent educational institutions like Anna University , IIT Madras and few other schools. The library abodes across 1.2 millions of books in 9 floorswith the state of art interior, with easily accessible design, which includes a separate amphitheater. A only library in the city which has a separate section for children makes it more special for parents who wish to cultivate periodical reading to their children. The braille section in the library with immense facilities is like a gem embedded to the crown. The books, journals, periodicals and magazines which are published across Indiaand collections of famous writers are made available for the readers to fulfill huge thirst for reading. Books which are not affordable for individuals are arranged to be accessible with free of cost. One of the important and excellent facility of the library is Own Book Reading Section, where you can bring your own books and read it. People who doesn’t found peaceful place to read and students who prepare for exams can make use of it. The public library which is open to access by any individual in and around the city. A peaceful place with excellent amenities for people with flair of reading. Make use of it for your intellectual development.
