Siragugal was an idea born a few years ago. A group of people came together with the idea of creating a child friendly , free library where kids could spread their wings.
We hoped the authorities would give us a space to start. While many promises were made, it was not to be.
After months of knocking at doors and ceaseless search, we managed to find a room of our own for our library. And it was worth the wait. A lovely, calm space awaited us.
One of our members, Sheela; made this possible. We decided to move in immediately with a small ceremony even though half the Siragugal group was away. Meet some of the group in the pictures, taken during the inaugural.
Happiness abounds as we conduct a simple ceremony, each of us lighting the lamp, starting off with the youngest.
