Tamil works bound for Selangor library


Compiled by JUNAID IBRAHIM, LIEW JIA XIAN and R. ARAVINTHAN

EIGHT Tamil works by local authors will be included in the Selangor state library system this year, reported Makkal Osai.

The Super Mind Dynamic Institute had been helped to submit works by local authors to the Selangor Public Library Corporation (PPAS) for the past eight years.

Its coordinator M. Ganesan said books by more than 30 authors have been made available at the library through this effort.

Out of 41 works submitted this year, only eight were selected.

He noted that books, especially by local authors in the native language of a community, are important in educating a society and elevating the minds of the youth, which is vital for any community to grow.

So far, only the Selangor and Penang public libraries have shown interest in accepting Tamil works. They will continue working for the inclusion of Tamil books in other states as well, he said.
