     Inaugurating the new facility, GVMC Commissioner M.Hari Narayana on Saturday said that students should get a good ambience to read and the refurbished look of the library will serve them well.

     Apart from new flooring, painting and decors, the seating capacity in the reading rooms have been enhanced from 160 to about 230.

     Apart from increasing the seating space and area that holds books and journal, we have provided tow air- conditioned rooms for Civil and other competitive examination aspirants, said library Secretary D.S.Varma.

     We also have started a career orientation section for the students who intend to write various competitive examinations, he added.

     According to Mr. Varma, the idea is to give students the right ambience to study.

    Ambience matters a lot. It motivates the students to study hard and prepare for various examinations, said MLA (North) P.Vishnu Kumar Raju, who was present at the inauguration.

But the unique feature is that the library will now run on green power.

Visakhapatnam MP K. Haribabu inaugurated the 55 kw rooftop solar power plant. The plant will generate close to 230 units, which will meet the library’s power needs.
