UPL Rotary Library

While industrial growth has been taking strides, there was no facility where persons from industry could refer to expensive books and journals. Keeping this in mind, Rotary Club of Ankleshwar started a technical library in May 1992. Actively supported by M/s. United Phosphorus Limited (UPL). The library has developed over the years.

Total number of books                     More than 7000

Total Investment                        Rs. 35.0 lacs (US$ 0.10 million )

WCS/Matching grants from various clubs             5 clubs

We have received WCS donations and Matching Grant Aid from following Clubs.

 (i)     Rotract Club of Broad meadows

(ii)        Rotary Club of Taipei, China

(iii)       R. I. Dist. 1050

(iv)       Rotary Club of Lockport, New York

(v)        Rotary Club of Glendale, C.A.

 In addition, Matching Grant from Rotary Club of Glendale (Sunrise), Glendale (Noon) are being worked out.

 The library has also received aid twice from Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR), Government of India, amounting to RS. 10.0 lacs.

Today the facilities at UPL Rotary Library are being utilized not only by the industries, but also by students, teachers, doctors and several people, in Ankleshwar.
