Mahatma Gandhi Library
The Mahatma Gandhi Library was founded in 2002 with the mission to increase public awareness, especially to the children, of Gandhian philosophy and teachings, highlighting the universal values of Peace, Truth, Nonviolence and Love. The Library has an exhaustive list of books, artifacts and an exhibition on wheels consisting of authentic pictures depicting the life and times of Mahatma Gandhi.
Organized by the Library in collaboration with more than 75 organizations, Mahatma Gandhi Week is celebrated each year around October 2nd, his birthday. Mahatma Gandhi Week is actually a one-month period of activities including essay, speech, poster, and debate contests, field trips, storytelling, and other activities with the simple aim of involving youth in understanding the work of Mahatma Gandhi. Mahatma Gandhi Week concludes with an auspicious celebration called 1000 Lights for Peace usually held on the Sunday around October 2nd.
