The Library was built and set up entirely through the support and contributions of benefactors from the community – within and outside the Bansa village. While we now have sufficient physical and digital infrastructure and overwhelming participation from learners of all ages, we need help with the expenses for sustaining the library’s day-to-day operations and for that we have patron support system in place.

PATRON SUPPORT SYSTEM

In human resources, we have two librarians who work in different shifts, a supervisor who looks after the logistics, and a part-time housekeeper who keeps the premises prim and proper. They all provide their services at a nominal monthly honorarium. Apart from that, we incur monthly expenses of electricity, newspaper and magazine subscriptions, and stationery for different events.

All these expenses come up to around ₹10,250 a month. You can help us in the following ways:

1. Pay for a particular purpose pn 5th of each month:
i. Main librarian’s honorarium: ₹2,500/month
ii. Support librarian’s honorarium: ₹1,500/month
iii. Supervisor’s honorarium: ₹1500/month
iv. Housekeeper’s monthly wages: ₹300/month
v. Newspaper: ₹350/month
vi. Electricity bill: ₹900/month
vii. Stationery and event organisation: ₹2,500/month
viii. Magazines and periodicals: ₹700/month

2. Pay a monthly amount of your choosing that we will utilise for a suitable purpose.

3. Make a one time contribution that we will utilise towards a suitable purpose on a monthly basis.
